The Sanergy Collaborative’s mission

The Sanergy Collaborative (Sanergy) strives to solve the sanitation crisis through the power of the circular economy. Sanergy harnesses independent companies united by a common vision across the sanitation value chain into one circular movement—delivering safe, equitable, and sustainable sanitation in low-income areas, converting waste into regenerative agricultural and energy products, and advising public and private sector entities to develop sanitation solutions at scale.

Impact in action
