It is in Bertrand Piccard’s DNA to achieve the impossible. As part of a legendary dynasty of explorers and scientists who conquered the heights and depths of our planet, he made history by accomplishing the first ever non-stop around the world balloon flight on board Breitling Orbiter 3. With a vision to demonstrate the immense potential of renewable energies, he then initiated the Solar Impulse challenge, and circumnavigated the globe in an airplane powered only by the sun. Being a pioneer of clean technologies, his goal is now to select 1000 economically profitable solutions to protect the environment. To this end, the Solar Impulse Foundation is dedicated to improving the quality of life on Earth by fast-tracking the implementation of clean and profitable solutions to help government officials go beyond compromise and to develop modern legal frameworks allowing for clean economic growth.
