Bertrand Piccard is the force behind Solar Impulse, the first aeroplane to fly around the world without a drop of fuel.


Piccard recently launched the World Alliance for Efficient Solutions, and with it the goal of selecting 1,000 solutions that protect the environment in a profitable way to bring them to decision makers by COP24 (2018) and encourage them to adopt more ambitious environmental targets and energy policies.


Coming from a family of explorers, it is in Piccard’s DNA to go beyond the obvious and push back the boundaries of the possible, as he did with his two round-the-world flights – with Solar Impulse and before that non-stop in a balloon. A trained psychiatrist, Bertrand Piccard constantly sets out to challenge certitudes and convictions, and advocates for an innovative and pioneering spirit to improve the quality of life on Earth.


Envisioning ecology through the lens of profitability, promoting clean and profitable solutions that are “logical” more than just “eco-logical,” Bertrand Piccard demonstrates the opportunities that lie in solving climate change.
