2020 P4G State-of-the-Art Partnership Winner
FINISH Mondial has been awarded the 2020 P4G Partnership of the Year! The P4G State-of-the-Art Partnership Awards are presented annually to public-private partnerships that have achieved measurable success based on innovation, impact and scalability.
P4G – Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030 – is a global platform with a venture capital approach to accelerating market-based partnerships to build sustainable and resilient economies. P4G bridges the gap between development and investment agendas to deliver inclusive, transformative solutions to meet the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement.
Globally, people at the bottom of the pyramid are deprived of adequate sanitation and safe water due to the lack of support from the financial sector. This is where FINISH Mondial comes in. This public-private partnership has gained recognition for its emphasis on self-sufficiency and scaling, increasing access to safe sanitation for all. FINISH aims to scale safe sanitation through an integrated approach to the circular sanitation economy, involving both supply and demand sides of the vast sanitation challenge. In 2019, FINISH achieved over 5 million users of safe sanitation and at least 10 million paid workdays in construction alone.
In the awarding ceremony, FINISH Mondial CEO, Valentin Post, noted, “Although we are named FINISH, this is not the end, but the beginning of more great work that we aspire to do within the water and sanitation sector!”. FINISH Mondial is set to become a €440 million sanitation programme, on track to build 2 million toilets benefitting at least 10 million people across 6 countries by 2025.
“In our third year of identifying State-of-the-Art Partnerships, the winners represent the best of the best partnerships. This year’s winners provide solutions at the cutting edge of sustainable economic growth and exhibit the resilience required to build back better and greener. Previous winners have also later been selected for P4G’s funding pipeline, which is a tribute to the P4G venture capital approach and our ability to build network and innovation opportunities through our diverse portfolio,” said P4G Global Director Ian de Cruz.
