We are thrilled to announce DelAgua & BURN have won Highly Commended for the Partnership of the Year Award at the 14th Responsible Business Awards hosted by Reuters Events.
With over 700 entries from 51 countries including some of the world’s most famous brands it was an honour to have been selected as a finalist. We attended the ceremony in London where over 280 finalists from all over the world came together to celebrate. Reuters Responsible Business Awards are a world-renowned celebration of organisations that challenge the status quo of business and transform the world around them for a more purpose-driven, sustainable future for all.
The judges found the ‘Partnership of the Year’ category difficult to decide as all the applications were of such a high calibre. As compere Tom Heap explained, DelAgua & BURN were chosen as exemplars of businesses innovating in traditionally difficult sectors with significant challenges through the means of collaboration. Tom commended the impact the partnership is having on the health and wellbeing of communities in Africa.

We are so proud of our partnership with BURN and the significant impact we are having on the lives of millions of people across Rwanda, The Gambia and Sierra Leone. It’s a unique combination of BURN’S top performing stove and our expertise in distribution, household education and community based support. We’d especially like to thank our dedicated team, as without them this achievement wouldn’t be possible.
