Schneider Electric and Solar Impulse Foundation to identify climate change solutions
A Schneider Electric-backed initiative by the Solar Impulse Foundation has reached a key goal: to identify and label 1,000 clean and profitable solutions to the global environmental crisis, and thus showcase to decision-makers in business and government that clean technologies can also be financially viable.
Led by Bertrand Piccard, the Solar Impulse Foundation announced its goal four years ago. Schneider Electric has been supporting the project since 2019, via a four-year commitment by the Schneider Electric Foundation.
“Many thanks to the Solar Impulse Foundation and congratulations to Bertrand Piccard,” said Jean-Pascal Tricoire, Chairman and CEO, Schneider Electric. “We’re inspired by your multiple scientific endeavors, and we’re very proud to work with you in developing solutions that are practical, ready to be implemented, and can solve the issues we face with climate change.”
Tricoire, alongside 14 other multinational corporations, have signed the Solar Impulse Foundation’s manifesto, which aims to encourage the adoption of more environmental targets, and fast-track large-scale implementations of solutions that tackle climate change.
