To take the success of the solar-powered flight around the world further, the Solar Impulse Foundation, led by Bertrand Piccard, is selecting 1000 solutions that protect the environment in a profitable way.
In October 2018, OpenAirlines has been labelled as a “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution”.
Every solution labelled have been submitted by members of the World Alliance for Efficient Solutions and assessed against a certified methodology by independents experts based on the following criteria:
- technological feasibility
- environmental and socio-economic benefits
- potential or realized profitability.
Solutions that meet these criteria were attributed the Solar Impulse Efficient Solutions Label.
In 2019, Bertrand Piccard will actively communicate about Efficient Solutions to policy and economic decision-makers. The objective is to bring the fact that today, there exist ways to solve environmental issues that make sense financially and ecologically.
“We need to embrace clean technologies and efficient solutions, because they are much more than ‘ecological’, they are ‘logical’ . They create jobs and generate profit, while also reducing CO2 emissions and preserving natural resources. Even if climate change didn’t exist, they would make sense. Clean growth is much better than the dirty status quo we have today."
