Social Enterprise in Focus : Auara, Spain

We took a break from blogging in August. Now we’re back with a splash, quite literally, to talk to you about this social enterprise from Spain – Auara.

A twist from the traditional bottled water

‘The water with values’ has taken quite a huge step forward by placing itself as a social enterprise selling bottled water. Auara reinvests 100% of its dividends in providing safe drinkable water to those who need it as well as watching their environmental impact by using only bottles made from recycled plastic. The water itself is ‘homegrown’ from León in northwest Spain.

Furthermore, they don’t simply donate their profits to NGOs working in the field of safer water. Instead they involve themselves and work with local partners, providing them with co-financing. This way they can be there on the field, be a part of and see the social impact first hand. This allows them to be more confident and transparent when reporting to others.

Social and environmental impact

You may have heard that some companies are water grabbing or getting concessions on underwater reservoirs. Sometimes even underneath populations who don’t even have access to clean drinking water. Well here is a social enterprise working to provide everyone with access to that very thing. You can even stock their water if you want to or become an ambassador, so find out more on their ambassador page.
