A SOCIAL BUSINESS
NGUVU UTILITIES is a social business that focuses on small – scale utility services in developing countries.
NGUVU UTILITIES wants to improve the access to affordable and sustainable utility services for households, businesses and communities in rural and peri-urban areas in developing countries. In doing so we want to contribute to the local socio-economic development and improve the quality of life.
WITH A SUSTAINABLE APPROACH
We want to achieve these goals in a socially, economically and ecologically sustainable way. Social sustainability means that we start from a social goal. It is also reflected in the fact that we provide solutions for all income levels, that we are locally embedded and create local employment. Utilities are provided through an enterprise-based approach. The local enterprises, which we support or invest in, offer products and services for which clients are willing to pay. To achieve a large impact with limited resources our activities must be profitable. Ecologic sustainability implies that we opt for renewable energy and that recycling is a key element.
