The Sustaintech Xcelerator Cycle 2 (2023) is seeking climate innovators to present feasible carbon dioxide and/or greenhouse gases removal pathways, to accelerate development at scale as part of a suite of climate actions.

The Sustaintech Xcelerator 2023 is a 6-month hybrid accelerator focused on carbon removal with the aim to eliminate carbon dioxide (CO2) and/or greenhouse gases from the atmosphere at scale.

Focus Areas

The Sustaintech Xcelerator Cycle 2 will accelerate solutions in following three main areas:

  • Nature-based approaches such as afforestation and reforestation
  • Technology based approaches such as carbon capture and storage
  • Enablers such as digital tools and capabilities on carbon accounting and sourcing of ESG data, with a preference for solutions that can help SMEs implement viable technology solutions to green their operations
Benefits
  • The Sustaintech Xcelerator provides bespoke support to selected applicants from our world-leading supporters like DBS Bank, Temasek, GenZero, Google Cloud, Capgemni, National University of Singapore Centre for Nature-based Climate Solutions, Verra and the World Bank.

  • Grant: A S$50,000 grant awarded to each selected innovator.
  • Mentorship: Each innovator will be paired with mentors from our partners and other organisations in our network.
  • Research: Innovators will have access to leading research expertise from the NUS Centre for Nature-based Climate Solutions.
  • Exposure: Innovators will be given frequent pitching and speaking opportunities. Public showcases will be organized with a wide range of private- and public sector stakeholders.
  • Continuity: Innovators will be provided with opportunities to remain engaged in the Singapore ecosystem – through academic partnerships and commercialisation opportunities.

  • Some examples of technologies and solutions that will be able to remove carbon at scale
  • Directly removing carbon from atmosphere at scale of 1MT potential by 2030, eg. nature-based, technology-based or hybrid.
  • Enabling carbon removal. e.g. through improved efficiency, verification or financing of carbon removal projects
  • Enablers such as digital tools and capabilities on carbon accounting and sourcing of ESG data, with a preference for solutions that can help SMEs implement viable technology solutions to green their operations
