LIXIL makes pioneering water and housing products that solve everyday, real-life challenges, making better homes a reality for everyone, everywhere.
At LIXIL, we design water and sanitation products that matter to people, including the SATO range of affordable and innovative toilet solutions developed to meet the specific needs of consumers in some of the poorest and most remote parts of the world. UNICEF works with different partners in over 100 countries to generate demand for water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services, drawing on decades of experience.
Together, LIXIL and UNICEF are pioneering new ways to tackle the global sanitation challenge. We call on others to join us in developing competitive sanitation markets. By making quality sanitation products available, ready for installation, easy to maintain, and supported by waste management systems, communities can become healthier and more prosperous.
We believe we can make a significant contribution to delivering on the globally agreed Sustainable Development Goal 6, Target 2: to achieve access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all, and end open defecation, paying special attention to the needs of women and girls and those in vulnerable situations.
This partnership aims to demonstrate how businesses in partnership with UNICEF, Governments, NGOs and communities can support the development of sustainable sanitation economies that benefit everyone. By creating demand for sanitation products like toilets, improving supply of such products, and supporting opportunities for affordable finance, LIXIL and UNICEF and expand this market for the better future of all children, their families and communities.
