Expanding our network to reach more people

The latest figures from UNICEF and the World Health Organization state that more than four billion people do not have safely managed sanitation services, while three billion lack basic handwashing facilities. These conditions carry significant health, social, and economic costs, which negatively impact people in emerging economies.

We have developed a line of products that solve many of these challenges, but we can’t do this on our own. We work with like-minded partners – from local manufacturers and distributors to corporates and NGOs – to expand access to our life-changing sanitation and hygiene products.

Commercial opportunities

Opportunities abound for commercial partnerships in the areas of manufacturing, distribution, retailing, and product installation. By partnering with us, you can help expand the availability of our products, while simultaneously playing a role improving sanitation and hygiene standards in emerging economies.

Such partnerships offer both the chance for commercial success and the opportunity to provide societal benefits by establishing supply networks for much-needed sanitation and hygiene solutions. To date, we have shipped 6.5 million products to more than 44 countries, impacting 35 million people, and have ambitions to improve the lives of 100 million people by 2025.

Our partnerships with government agencies like USAID and international organisations like UNICEF also create commercial opportunities as we work to increase household access to sanitation and to increase the adoption of key hygiene behaviors through market-based approaches. Our work to expand the market for affordable sanitation and hygiene solutions, to improve the availability of products, and to ensure the reliability of supply chains means the outlook for our commercial partners has never been more promising.
