Duncan Goose is Founder and CEO of Global Ethics Limited, The One Brand and The One Foundation.
The One Foundation is a UK registered charity, which donates profits from the One brand to fund clean water projects in some of the harshest regions of Africa.
Formerly a director of a marketing agency, and having ridden a motorbike around the world, Duncan launched One after being caught in Hurricane Mitch in Honduras in 1998 – a natural disaster responsible for killing 20,000 people, and experiencing life without access to drinking water.
Driven by his passion for helping those without clean, drinking water and committed to making changes to the global water sector, Duncan is now building on the expertise acquired over the past decade venturing into new areas of international development, in addition to overseeing the daily running of One.
One exists with the single objective of raising funds for water projects in Africa and it does this primarily through selling One drinks, which are stocked by retailers and corporate organisations, as well as being present at events that share Duncan’s goal of wanting to make a difference to the global water crisis.
Duncan has celebrated numerous milestones during One’s ten-year history, including a Great Briton Award, European Entrepreneur of the Year, UK Entrepreneur of the Year, the Beacon Fellowship award and an International ‘Hero’ award in recognition of his role and continuing efforts to bring clean, drinking water to the 663 million people without access to it, but his proudest remains celebrating having donated over £12m to funding African water projects, changing the lives of over 3 million people.
His current projects include launching a new, bank, called One for Money aimed at students, first time bankers and the ‘unbankable’ and launching a new Global Fund for Water which could raise over $3bn a year for water and sanitation projects globally.
