Poor sanitation remains one of our planet’s greatest challenges. It holds back 2.4 billion citizens, the global economy and social development. There is an urgent need for radical change at pace if the world is to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 6 – universal access to sanitation – by the 2030 deadline. The Toilet Board Coalition believes that there is a clear role for business to play.
What is the Toilet Board Coalition?
The Toilet Board Coalition is a global, business-led coalition of leading companies, investors, sanitation experts and non-profit organisations who have come together to accelerate innovative market-based solutions that deliver sanitation at scale, to those who need it most.
The projects the Coalition supports meet three criteria:
- Market-based: Proving the viability of profitable sanitation initiatives introduces new thinking and innovation, complementing existing programmes led by development groups and multiplying the impact.
- Innovative: From business models to products, demand creation to financing mechanisms, the Toilet Board Coalition accelerates businesses and initiatives that approach the business of toilets from a fresh perspective.
- Scalable: 2.4 billion people do not have access to a safe toilet. So that nobody gets left behind, we’re focusing on building market-based sanitation initiatives that can be taken to scale.more
