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.
