World Toilet Day

Sustainable sanitation and climate change

HAPPY WORLD TOILET DAY!

Join TÜV SÜD as we celebrate this year’s United Nations World Toilet Day 2020 theme "Sustainable Sanitation and Climate Change". 
This day brings light to the 4.2 billion people living without access to safely managed sanitation systems making them more vulnerable to health risks and climate change threats. 


Thursday, 19 November 2020


This day brings light to the 4.2 billion people living without access to safely managed sanitation systems making them more vulnerable to health risks and climate change threats. These toilet systems used by billions of humans are under threat from climate change. Natural disasters like floods and droughts bring further damage to the already weak systems and can carry sewage threatening human health. 

On World Toilet Day, we recognise and congratulate the efforts of many to provide sustainable sanitation facilities to minimise and eventually eliminate these threats promoting human health and environmental wellbeing. Sustainable sanitation facilities harness the reusable products in waste providing opportunities to communities to financially benefit and capture and reduce harmful emissions for a greener tomorrow. 

TÜV SÜD’s commitment to creating a safer and more sustainable future drives our motivation to contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goal 6; ensuring access to water and sanitation for all by 2030. Our experience in defining standards and expecting beyond regulatory compliance of technologies coupled with our collaborative work with technology developers means we can deliver safe and reliable products to the communities which need it most. By bringing interdisciplinary expertise and international experience to the table, the experts from TÜV SÜD are making a major contribution towards bringing safe, reliable new sanitation technologies to the market and grounding organisations’ sustainability goals in action. 

Our Sustainable and Sanitation Services team provides certification readiness assessments of technologies that demonstrate the ability to achieve requirements of ISO 30500 and ISO 31800, a step towards the certification journey. We provide training opportunities from introduction videos to specialised training focused on certain clauses and test procedures, to ensure that you have all the knowledge you need to be compliant to the standards. 

In celebration of World Toilet Day, we are happy to announce ISO 30500 training scribe on “Diving into ISO 30500 Clauses” is now available in French!
