The Solar Impulse Foundation and its partner Air France are seeking efficient 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.
How can we use the power of innovation & technologies to accelerate the ecological transition while reducing its impact on the environment?
Accelerate the aviation ecological transition
Identifiy, find and give visibility to clean and efficient Aviation solutions to accelerate the sector's ecological transition. It is essential to rely on solutions that have a positive impact on the ecology.
Design sustainable aviation services and process
Consider the importance of ecology in the creation process of new services and products. The criteria of ecology, sustainability and energy effiency must become mandatory.
Investing in researches & inovation for credible alternatives
The aviation sector faces technological challenges for which massive resewarch and deveopment ressources are required. The involvement of al the actors of the aviation industry is essential to develop solutions for a sustainable aviation.
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.
