Boosting the adoption of profitable solutions to protect the environment
To address environmental challenges while enabling economic growth, Bertrand Piccard has launched, through the Solar Impulse Foundation, the challenge to select 1000 solutions,that can protect the environment in a profitable way and present them to decision-makers to fast-track their implementation. A way to take the success of the solar-powered flight around the world further.
Solutions exist that are logical more than just ecological, that can create jobs and generate profit while also reducing polluting emissions and preserving natural resources.Bertrand Piccard
An award for clean and profitable solutions Assessed by independent experts, the Solar Impulse Efficient Solution label, serves as a credible marker of quality to decision-makers in business and governments.This will pull new technologies and products to the market and fast track their implementation.
