Created in 2012 with the purpose to tackle the global sanitation and hygiene challenge, SATO is an award-winning social business that empowers underserved communities around the world so they can create a better life and a brighter future through improved sanitation and hygiene.

Consumer-centric, our innovative, aspirational yet affordable sanitation and hygiene solutions have been developed based on our customers’ needs and wants. Ranging from toilet pans and connection systems to tap for handwashing, our products are water-saving, durable, easy to install, and simple to use.

Our product line has won a number of prestigious awards, including the Red Dot Design Award and the Deputy-Chief’s Award from the Japan SDG Awards, for the SATO Toilet systems range; and the TIME Magazine Best Inventions of 2020 for the SATO Tap.

In order to increase the reach of our solutions and improve sanitation globally, we have established long-lasting partnerships with local manufacturers, NGOs and inter-governmental organizations such as UNICEF, USAID and JICA.

A brand of LIXIL, maker of pioneering water and housing products, SATO has impacted more than 35 million lives since inception, across 44 countries in Africa and Asia.
