The Toilet Board Coalition is thrilled to announce the appointment of its new governance. After exemplary leadership as Vice-Chair, Jenny Lewis, Vice President, of Kimberly-Clark Foundation has transitioned to Toilet Board Coalition Chair.
“As the head of the Kimberly-Clark Foundation, I have been involved with the Toilet Board Coalition since its inception in 2015 when Kimberly-Clark helped found it, which has allowed me to see the organization’s incredible growth and global impact over just a few years. The Coalition positively impacts the Sanitation Economy through its Accelerator program, where entrepreneurial energy collides with expertise from mentors at multinational corporations. In my new role as the Chair of the Toilet Board Coalition, I look forward to helping the organization make even more progress toward its bold goal to put itself out of business by 2030 since that means everyone will have access to reliable, dignified and safe sanitation.”

We are also extremely pleased to welcome Aalap Sharma, Global Brand Lead for Domestos, Unilever and Erin McCusker, Senior Vice President, Leader at SATO and LIXIL Public Partners into our leadership, as Toilet Board Coalition Vice-Chairs.
“As a founding Member of the Toilet Board Coalition, I believe multinational corporations like LIXIL, with a global network and diverse expertise, play a significant role in supporting ambitious entrepreneurs tackling the sanitation markets to grow and deliver on the potential of the sanitation economy. As the Coalition has itself grown and transitioned from a startup to early-growth, I am excited to step back into a leadership role as Vice-Chair and work closely with Kimberly Clark as Chair, and the Coalition as a whole, as we expand further with our 2030 strategy– serving the unmet needs of billions of people around the world who still lack access to safe sanitation.”

“Unilever is one of the founding Members of The Toilet Board Coalition and I am excited to join the Steering Committee, driving impact through its Accelerator. Private sector partnership with the Coalition brings together MNCs with the most innovative entrepreneurs, strengthening strategy, deepening purpose and accelerating sustainability.”

Our mission and our Members remain the same – their active engagement plays an integral role in the Coalition’s impact – accelerating business solutions to the sanitation crisis. Since its establishment in 2015, the Toilet Board Coalition’s efforts have graduated 58 SMEs, impacting more than 2.4 million people daily and unlocking US$22 million in finance. Our approach is building a Sanitation Economy that is thriving, circular and smart, inspiring the brightest entrepreneurs and bringing dignity to life.
The Toilet Board Coalition would like to thank our outgoing Chair, Ishtpreet Singh, Global Brand Director for Domestos, for his inspirational leadership, constant support and drive to improve sanitation. Under his leadership, the Coalition was able to amplify and strengthen its model and prepare a thorough trajectory towards 2030.
“It’s incredible to experience the support and leadership around us, as we accelerate business solutions to the sanitation crisis. We are extremely grateful for past leaders that have steered the Toilet Board Coalition’s impact to date and we continue to accelerate our Accelerator with our new, inspiring leaders.”
Greg Davies, Toilet Board Coalition CEO
We have a 7-year strategy to accelerate towards 2030, improving 1 billion lives as we accelerate 1,000 thriving sanitation businesses, and unlock US$1 billion additional economic value and US$2 billion investment into the Sanitation Economy. Our leadership understands the commercial opportunities for their businesses, which drive progress towards sanitation for all (SDG 6.2).
