1000+ efficient and profitable solutions to protect the environment
To address environmental challenges without compromising economic growth, Bertrand Piccard and the Solar Impulse Foundation have identified 1000+ clean and profitable solutions, and are now committed to going even further. By offering political and economic decision-makers a Guide to Solutions that can be implemented on a large scale, the Foundation will help them establish a roadmap for the adoption of much more ambitious energy and environmental programs and thus achieve their carbon neutrality objectives.
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
A new challenge
4 years ago, Bertrand Piccard set the challenge of selecting 1000 solutions to protect the environment in a profitable way. Today, we have reached this milestone. So, what comes next?
It’s time to use these efficient solutions to make our world cleaner, more efficient and boost economic growth. To help anyone search solutions, we create the Guide. To help companies and public authorities achieve their environmental targets, we build the Cleanprint. To drive investment in clean technologies, we match investors with efficient solutions providers.
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 3886 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.
