About Sanergy

Sanergy is an
award-winning social venture based in Nairobi, Kenya. We undertake three
exciting lines of work:

  • We provide safe, sustainable sanitation services
    to residents living in urban informal settlements of Nairobi and Kisumu
    using end-to-end non-sewered sanitation solutions. Watch here!

  • We implement a circular economy model to
    sustainably manage sanitation and organic waste generated in cities. Using
    technologies developed in-house, we upcycle the waste into insect-based
    protein for animal feed, organic fertilizer, and biomass fuel. We operate
    the largest organics recycling plant in East Africa. Watch here!

  • We partner with cities to develop and deliver safe
    sanitation and waste management for urban residents. Using a systematic
    methodology, we match cities’ sanitation and waste management needs with
    technology and service delivery models, and then offer clear guidance on
    the steps that governments, funders, service providers and technology
    developers can take to develop and implement integrated service delivery
    systems. 

Operational since 2011,
Sanergy serves over 140,000 urban residents with safe sanitation services every
day. Sanergy collects and treats over 12,000T of waste per year, and
successfully sells its agricultural end-products to farmers in over 20 counties
in Kenya, who see improved yields and increased incomes. At the same time, we
have built a team of over 400 employees from diverse backgrounds who solve
diverse problems, but all embody the drive, creativity, teamwork, and passion
that make us achieve our goals. For our work, we have been recognized by the
Gates Foundation as one of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals accelerator;
by Fast Company as one of the 10 most innovative companies in the world doing
social good and one of the 10 best companies in Africa, and the Food Planet
Prize for our innovative circular economy approach.
