1000+ 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
‘Prêt à Voter’
Beyond solutions, it is the regulatory framework that drives environmental protection forward. Bertrand Piccard promotes a realistic and unifying ecology having been campaigning for many years to encourage the modernisation of legislation, in line with technological developments, to facilitate the emergence of clean solutions on the market.
With the Solar Impulse Foundation, he is launching the ‘Prêt à Voter’ initiative and submitting 50 legislative recommendations to the members of the French Parliament and Ministerial Cabinet. Each recommendation is based on an existing French innovation with the goal of supporting communities and companies in their green transition.
This dynamic, free-access database showcases 1,000+ clean and profitable Solutions from all over the world which have been assessed by independent experts for their environmental and economic performance.
Solution Explorer allows business, public authorities or individuals to work towards their climate objective. Its user-friendly filtering tool enables Solutions to be selected based on sectors, clients, applications, environmental benefits and technologies.
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 4318 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.
