So far, Blue Companies only exist in Switzerland, where private companies active in the water industry have taken the Blue Community pledge and joined the network. The first private engineering company to do so was Hunziker Betatech, a company with 10 offices throughout Switzerland and around 200 employees, active in a wide range of water, wastewater and related fields. However, the very first private company to become a Blue Community at the end of 2022 was not an engineering company, but is in financial matters: FP Finances Publiques AG, providing consultancy and support also to public water providers.

The Blue Community is open to private companies to join if they commit to water and sanitation as a human right and to public ownership and control of our water, rejecting not only bottled water in their offices but the privatisation and commodification of water at local and global levels.
