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.

A pioneering vision, considering ecology through the lens of profitability As an influential voice on progress and sustainability, Bertrand Piccard is now working to develop collaborations with governments, institutions and large companies to give them practical tools to reconcile ecology and economy and prove that solving climate change – rather than an expensive problem – is a fantastic market opportunity.
A global strike force to fast-track solutions Strong believer in the power of synergies and in the need to bring together clean technology players, Bertrand Piccard has launched the World Alliance for Efficient Solutions. This community of 3407 innovators and investors from all walks of life and, above all, a "pool" of solutions, ready to be labelled and promoted among decision-makers, the media and the public.
A first in energy to showcase the potential of clean technologies When Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg succeeded in flying 43,000 km around the world in a solar-powered airplane without using a drop of fuel, it was more than a historic first, it was a first in energy highlighting the potential of clean technologies that can do more than we ever thought possible, reducing our energy consumption, protect natural resources and improve the quality of life on Earth.
A support to fulfill the 1000 Solutions Challenge Thanks to the continued support of its partners, the Solar Impulse Foundation can can fulfill its 1000 Solutions Challenge, fund the World Alliance for Efficient Solutions and offer all services to its Members entirely free of charge.
