Green recognition from Solar Impulse Foundation

Our green building solutions have been recognized by none other than the Solar Impulse Foundation, who champion the most innovative technologies that protect the environment in a financially positive way.

 

Five years ago, Bertrand Piccard concluded his flight around the world in a solar powered airplane. The performance demonstrated what clean technologies can do and triggered the creation of the Solar Impulse Foundation (SIF) to accelerate the wide adoption of clean technologies.

Boosting the adoption of profitable solutions to protect the environment, in 2018 Solar Impulse Foundation started to select 1000 solutions that can protect the environment in a profitable way and present them to decision-makers to fast-track their implementation. Selected solutions receive a label from the Foundation as proof of their positive environmental and economic impact. Each awarded solution was strictly assessed by a pool of independent experts.
