“Weʼre always working to reduce our consumption of energy, water and materials. A few of our strategies include minimizing HVAC needs through appropriate seasonal attire, utilizing task lighting and daylighting to light workspaces, employing ground-source heat pumps and photovoltaic arrays, installing water-saving devices such as low-flow fixtures and composting toilets, and minimizing office supplies by handling most activities electronically and utilizing recycled materials for those supplies we must use. After reducing what we can, we also repurpose anything we can before considering buying new, and we recycle as much as we can, including composting kitchen wastes.” – Lura Faust, Executive Administrator

“Being part of the Best for the World list means a great deal. We work tirelessly to provide the best possible toilet service to a part of the population that is too often neglected. We spend hours and days on end in these communities, talking to our customers and to prospective ones, racking our brains to find ever more ways to make the service more attractive and affordable and to make the toilet ever more comfortable. So, a recognition of this global scope is something that makes us, as a team, feel valued, respected and, most of all, confirmed in our mission to bring dignified sanitation to the world's poor!” – Isabel Medem, Co-Founder & CEO

“Part of our business model is to process collected feces into nutrient-rich and safe compost. This means that we affect the environment positively in two ways. One, by removing toxic waste that would otherwise remain in the community, posing health risks to humans, destroying the soil and contaminating the ground waters. And secondly, we make a product that enriches and nurtures the environment out of toxic material, meaning that we produce something that not only doesn't damage the environment, but it actually heals it.” – Isabel Medem, Co-Founder & CEO
