HELP BUILD A GREENER FUTURE FOR OUR PLANET WITH THE SUSTAINABILITY OPEN INNOVATION CHALLENGE 2021!

 

With ever increasing global average temperatures, diminishing natural resources, growing waste, and rising greenhouse gas emissions, there is an urgent need to develop and implement sustainable solutions to restore and protect our environment.

As the recovery of our ecosystems is both a complex and multi-faceted challenge, collaboration is key to innovate towards a more sustainable future.

Following the successes of the past two Sustainability Open Innovation Challenges (SOICs), Enterprise Singapore (ESG) is once again collaborating with key industry partners to launch our third edition of the challenge with challenge statements in key sustainability areas such as sustainable materials, waste management, and many more.

We are inviting innovative companies to participate in this challenge not only for the chance to collaborate with major partners, testbed and access funding to develop the solutions, but to also play a critical role in building a more sustainable future for the world.

 
As the world continues to grapple with COVID-19, we must not take our eye off the global climate agenda. Climate change is an urgent and existential threat, and all countries have to build on the Paris Agreement to address this global challenge to humanity.
