Solutions for Clean Aviation
Clean and profitable solutions in aviation
Air France and the Solar Impulse Foundation are joining forces in order to accelerate the adoption of clean and profitable technological solutions in aviation. The Partnership will identify and promote technologies which positively impact the reduction in carbon emissions, waste and noise. All of these clean, efficient and economically feasible solutions will be made available to the aviation industry to build a more sustainable future and Air France will implement those which are relevant to its activities.
By applying to the Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label, selected solutions will have the opportunity to join the #1000solutions challenge, and to possibly collaborate with Air France, one of the world’s largest airlines.

Our common vision
President, Solar Impulse Foundation
“Numerous clean and profitable solutions
already exist to make aviation more
sustainable. We want to promote and
implement them at scale in the air and on
This is precisely the objective of our partnership with Air France who is committed to taking the lead in the future of clean aviation. The Solar Impulse Foundation is dedicated to helping them get there. ”
CEO, Air France
“My ambition is to offer everyone, both current and future generations, a responsible travel experience. We must step up the transition to a more sustainable air transport and we voluntarily make new commitments for today and 2030. The Solar Impulse foundation is our partner of choice, to help innovate now, and pioneer a more sustainable aviation for the future.
Reducing carbon footprint in the air and on the ground, stepping up in circular economy, offsetting impacts whenever possible : these are the paths we explore with all labelled Solutions for Clean Aviation !”
