our members

The Toilet Board Coalition is a business-led membership organisation which welcomes members from the private sector, investment and donor community and development sector.

What makes us different

We are business led. The Coalition advocates for private sector engagement and market based approaches at every level. We believe the sanitation economy can contribute to bottom lines while improving lives and protecting our planet.

We are impact driven. Our work originates from and comes back to outcomes on the ground – customers served, waste recycled and revenue generated.

We are open, we work with all sizes, geographies and sectors of business.

We are a Coalition, we advance together. Every project we take on involves multiple members to ensure the learnings, impact and value are optimised.

The Coalition is governed by influencial professionals in the WASH sector. 

NGOs, Academic Institutions, Network Partners, bringing sector expertise. 

Our alumni of Accelerator participants, helping scale the Sanitation Economy with innovative business models. 

DFIsDonors and Investors bringing their investment lens and evaluation of opportunities in the sector. Membership is confidential.

The Steering Committee, Partnership Council, Cohort Council and Investment Council make up the Toilet Board Coalition governance.

Members come together through quarterly Roundtables (Latin America, Africa or Asia), to advise and catalyse regional growth. Members are able to bring experts from across their organisation to input into work, learn from and engage with other members. This enables new and existing members to engage in an agile and focused manner in the work of the Coalition. 

Regional Associate Members have a choice to join a Regional Roundtable or to join as Global Associate Members to have access to multiple Roundtables.
