we work together

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 full membership convenes twice a year to discuss mission priorities and activities. The Steering Committee, Cohort Council and Investment Council also convene on a quarterly basis.

  • Sector leading corporate entities and donors engage in the Steering Committee and drive the strategy and agenda of the organisation.
  • Accelerator Programme Alumni are invited into the Cohort Council to continue engaging in the work of the Coalition.
  • Select investors, interested in collaborating on innovative financing mechanisms for the sector are invited to join the Investment Council.
  • Global Associate Members, leading NGOs and Academic Institutions make up the Partnership Council which advises and inputs into TBC activities through Annual Member Meetings.


We convene Roundtables from across the Toilet Board Coalition membership and network, 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.

Roundtables are chaired by a Steering Committee Member who anchors and aligns the Roundtable’s activities with the TBC’s overarching mission and work. They convene on a monthly or quarterly basis and are operationally supported by the Secretariat.

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