CapitaLand's Global Sustainability Innovation Challenge is here to advance collaboration in sustainability within the built environment!


CapitaLand, one of Asia’s largest diversified real estate groups, seeks to collaborate with innovators who have solutions to make buildings more climate-resilient and resource-efficient.

Can the built environment be part of the solution to climate change?

CapitaLand Sustainability X Challenge (CSXC), the global search for innovations in 2023 saw 10 outstanding innovators win an opportunity to pilot at selected CapitaLand properties around the world with over S$1 million to cover the cost of test bedding all the selected innovations. Successfully piloted innovations may be implemented across CapitaLand’s global portfolio across more than 260 cities in over 40 countries, providing innovators with an opportunity to scale up their solutions. Registration is now closed. Watch this space for updates on the Top 10 finalists and Demo Day!

“CapitaLand’s sustainability journey started over two decades ago. We recognise that innovation is a key lever to achieve our sustainability targets. CSXC offers startups from around the world the opportunity to testbed their innovations for the built environment at our properties as well as tap on leading industry expertise to commercialise and scale up their solutions. Twenty innovations from our first two challenges have been given the opportunity to be piloted at 24 CapitaLand properties in five countries. We are implementing innovations from the successful pilots at several of our properties.”

Collective action is necessary to effect meaningful change, and our stakeholders’ involvement is integral in our journey to achieve Net Zero emissions by 2050. We have been actively engaging tenants through initiatives such as our green lease programme, providing green fit-out guides and activities to raise awareness on sustainability. By partnering with them to pilot CSXC innovations at their spaces, we hope to work collaboratively to improve their sustainability performance, and leverage innovation to create a better future. We thank BCA, EnterpriseSG, DBS and our other partners for their continued support of CSXC,”
