Capitaland Sustainability X Challenge. Can your innovation make buildings more climate-resilient and resource-efficient ?
The buildings and construction sector consumes 36% of the world’s energy and accounts for more than one-third of annual carbon emissions. We must rethink the way we design, build and operate our buildings to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement to keep global temperature rise well below 2°C this century, combatting climate change and ensuring the well-being of building occupants and users. We need collective action from real estate developers, enterprises, government, and society to develop ground-breaking solutions for waste reduction, energy and water efficiency improvements, and healthy and safe buildings.

Enter The Capitaland Sustainability X Challenge 

Do you want to pave the way for sustainability in the built environment ? Have an idea to slash the carbon footprint and water usage of buildings ? Know of ways to give construction-related waste a new lease of life ? 
The CapitaLand Sustainability X Challenge (CSXC) is calling for proposals across the globe to make buildings more climate-resilient and resource-efficient. The 6 finalists will be mentored by business leaders from CapitaLand and senior leaders from CSXC’s strategic partners, and given access to potential investors through CSXC global partners’ sustainability and innovation platforms. Two winners will each be given an exclusive opportunity to pilot, test and implement your solution with CapitaLand, with the chance to secure up to S$50,000 in project funding. Winners will also have the chance to showcase their innovations to senior global business leaders, investors and policymakers at the annual Ecosperity Week organised by Temasek.
The challenge has four main themes, which are :
