Interesting!
Multiple ways that corporates can be engaged; investments on new business process by innovating toilet designs, developing market for new sanitation technologies, incubation for new products/ideas and so on.
CSR spending, still a small amount on sanitation, have specific segment of the market that can benefit from, leaving the larger question of re-inventing sanitation that remains unanswered.

In addition to Cheryl's comment, I would like to add we are seeking your comments on how companies can get engaged in sanitation apart from CSR. For example, can they mentor business models for those wanting to be sanitation entrepreneurs. Please note, this topic will be open for comments from 28 November to 4 December, 2016.

Big thanks to SUSANA for inviting us to host this session focused on what we at the Toilet Board believe to be the business opportunity of the decade - Toilet & Sanitation business models that deliver sanitation to all through the market.

We see a compelling business case for both large and small businesses to thrive and grow based on core business interests.

The businesses we work with see opportunities in future smart, sustainable sanitation that builds the market for low-income consumers of sanitation products & services, provides value added raw materials for supply chains (such bio energy and agricultural products) and is a future source of essential health information.

We have also seen that the marketplaces for buyers and sellers of toilets and toilet resources is already operational in some low-income communities. These pioneering businesses are now getting ready for scale.
