WE BELIEVE TOILETS FOR 2.4 BILLION IS THE BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY OF THE DECADE.

WE’RE BUILDING THE GLOBAL SANITATION BUSINESS ECOSYSTEM THROUGH PARTNERSHIP AND ACCELERATION.

The Toilet Board Coalition brings together experts from business, investment, and the global sanitation community through our platform to cross-fertilise experiences, innovate at all levels, and catalyse the growth of profitable sanitation businesses that deliver sanitation to all. We work at a thought-leadership systems level to co-create the necessary ecosystem to support sanitation businesses to scale through the Business Opportunity Space programmes. And, through our Toilet Accelerator, we work directly with promising businesses in low-income markets that have the potential to deliver sustainable and resilient sanitation at scale.
