Solar Impulse Foundation


Bertrand Piccard is the initiator and pilot behind Solar Impulse, the first aircraft to fly around the world without a drop of fuel. He has long considered ecology through the lens of profitability and, as Chairman of the Solar Impulse Foundation, he promotes qualitative growth by demonstrating the economic potential of clean technologies. Denouncing the absurdity of polluting and inefficient systems that are still used too often today, he advocates for the modernization of legal frameworks that capture the benefits of, and create a market for, efficient solutions.
