The CapitaLand Sustainability X Challenge (CSXC) is a global platform to advance innovation and collaboration in sustainability within the built environment. Through the CSXC, CapitaLand aims to source for emerging solutions/technologies globally to solve sustainability challenges impacting our business and accelerate our progress to meet CapitaLand's 2030 Sustainability Master Plan targets.
From 10 November 2020 to 17 February 2021, the CapitaLand Sustainability X Challenge is calling for proposals across the globe to make buildings more climate-resilient and resource-efficient focused on four key areas: (i) low carbon transition; (ii) water conservation & resilience; (iii) waste management & circular economy and (iv) healthy & safe buildings. 6 shortlisted participants will undergo mentorship and coaching to refine their proposals for the Grand Finale pitch. Shortlisted participants will present to a panel of judges during the Grand Finale in May 2021.
Solutions should address one of the following challenge statements:
#1 Low carbon transition: How might we achieve onsite clean energy solutions for existing buildings?
#2 Low carbon transition: How might we achieve significant reduction in energy consumption for existing buildings?
#3 Water conservation & resilience: How can we adopt new ways of managing water in existing properties in order to detect abnormalities in the water usage pattern and/or leakages?
#4 Water conservation & resilience: How might we reduce potable water usage in existing buildings with water harvesting and/or recycling methods?
#5 Waste management & circular economy: How might we better segregate waste at source for recycling or treatment?
#6 Waste management & circular economy: What is a viable circular economic solution that CapitaLand can introduce to manage resources and waste across CapitaLand properties and construction sites?
#7 Healthy & safe buildings: How might we improve indoor air quality (IAQ) to enhance wellness of users in our existing buildings?
