Bertrand Piccard

Iniator & Chairman – Solar Impulse Foundation

A pioneering spirit and an influential voice to encourage the implementation of efficient solutions.

One of the first, as early as the 2000s, to consider ecology through the lens of profitability, Bertrand Piccard is considered an opinion leader on the themes of innovation and sustainability. 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 too often used today, he advocates for the modernization of the legal framework in order to facilitate access to the market for efficient solutions.

His voice is heard within the largest institutions, such as the United Nations, the European Commission, the World Economic Forum… and his commitment has earned him several nominations, such as Champion of the Earth, and United Nations Goodwill Ambassador.
