WE HAVE ONLY 6 YEARS...

BUT WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF BUSINESS TO DELIVER SOLUTIONS TO THE PLACES AND PEOPLE WHO NEED IT MOST.

Which is why the Coalition connects local sanitation innovators, global business leaders and investors to drive progress on water and sanitation for all by 2030 (SDG 6).

WASH LEADERS FORUM IS GOING REGIONAL

Bringing together sanitation businesses and those that support them in Latin America, Africa and Asia

THE ACCELERATOR

In 2015 leading multinational corporations Unilever, LIXIL and Kimberly-Clark, founded the Toilet Board Coalition to accelerate business solutions to the sanitation crisis.

Our flagship programme – the Accelerator – provides business model coaching, corporate mentorship and access to investment to Sanitation Economy entrepreneurs serving low-income markets. To date, the Coalition has graduated 70 SMEs, impacting more than 3 million people daily and unlocking US$33 million in finance. Our 80+ Members’ diverse approach to sanitation proudly leads to essential innovation in toilet design, circular recovery of biological resources, and smart digital technologies to ensure safe and sustainable sanitation for all.

We’re on a mission to accelerate 1,000 businesses by 2030 – ensuring that an additional 1 billion people are reached.
