Launched in 2011, as a cross-sector partnership between City Developments Limited (CDL) and Global Compact Network Singapore (GCNS), the award seeks to cultivate a new generation of young leaders to champion a sustainable future for Singapore and beyond.
The 3-key tenets of this case-competition are:
• Educate our future leaders to appreciate the corporate, social and environmental challenges and to promote the fundamental importance of weaving sustainability principles into the fabric of any organisations.
• Provide youths with a platform to execute sustainability principles within real-life business scenarios.
• Encourage and engage organisations to practice sustainability and possibly adopt viable sustainability strategies proposed by the student teams.Register Now
