Sustainability Open Innovation Challenge 2022

Date/Deadline: 31 Jan, 2023

Embrace a sustainable future and harness your innovative ideas to create a greener planet for all. Sustainability Open Innovation Challenge 2022 launched by Enterprise Singapore, aims to bring together industry partners and creative innovators to co-develop sustainable solutions in key areas such as sustainable materials, packaging, zero-waste and many more.

Our planet is facing unprecedented challenges. Threats to their environment with global warming, excessive single-use waste and depleting natural resources have instigated an urgent need to develop and implement solutions to help sustain their planet for future generations.

Their 4th edition of the Sustainability Open Innovation Challenge, launched by Enterprise Singapore, aims to bring together industry partners and creative innovators to co-develop sustainable solutions. Solutions should be implemented locally and regionally before pushing them out on a global scale.

For this challenge, each of their industry partners bring a unique challenge statement addressing key themes of Green Buildings, Renewable Energy, Sustainable Food Source, Zero-waste, Sustainable Materials and Packaging.

Winning innovators will access a unique opportunity for co-innovation with corporates, benefiting from their extensive expertise, mentorship and resources. Other prize rewards include potential grant support from Enterprise Singapore, S$70,000 from Hexagon Group, alongside potential funding and test-bedding opportunities from the industry partners themselves.

The time is now to make a tangible difference to your business and the sustainable goals of their planet. Apply for the Sustainability Open Innovation Challenge 2022 today!
