The community plays an important role in the creation of a true Greenprint. To support and fund the development and implementation of Green solutions within the precinct, HDB has set up a "Greenprint Fund".
HDB is looking for great ideas to achieve savings in water or electricity usage, increase recycling rates, reduce heat in the environment, or improve community bonding, and quality of living and environment. Green Solutions can fall under any of the categories below.
Green Solutions should be new and original, encompass workable or implementable products, systems, processes or work methodologies.
What is HDB's Greenprint fund
- The HDB's Greenprint Fund will support green test-bedding solutions and implementations within Yuhua.
- In this Greenprint Fund, HDB is looking for great ideas to achieve savings in water or electricity usage, increase recycling rates, heat reduction in environment, or improve community bonding, and quality of living and environment.
- The test-bedding solutions could be in terms of products, process, system or methodology that could help to improve or create a greener and sustainable living environment. However, the solutions should be new, original (i.e. no direct applications of off-the-shelf products and no direct monetary incentive-base proposals) and implementable. It should not be ideas or concepts that are abstract and not implementable.
- Interested applicants could submit their application forms and completed documents to HDB during the grant call. Potential applications will be invited for a presentation. Successful applicants will be notified by HDB.
Objectives and Scope
