Concrete solutions for a clean future
“The FUTUREISCLEAN campaign reflects Banksia’s vision for a sustainable Australia. The Banksia Foundation is dedicated to working with industry and community, to focus attention on the recognition of environmental excellence and sustainability, and we see this campaign as an excellent opportunity to engage the wider Australian community."- Graz van Egmond, CEO, Banksia Foundation.
The Banksia Foundation is a well-established not-for-profit organisation in Australia, dedicated to working with industry and community to create an array of platforms to focus attention on the recognition of environmental excellence and sustainability. Solar Impulse is a unique and innovative platform for developed and developing countries, to address increasing greenhouse gas emissions and natural resource exploitation, whilst raising awareness for clean technology. We are one of the sunniest countries on the planet, we are girt by sea and we endure high winds, Australia is perfectly situated to be a leader in clean technology. The Banksia Foundation is hopeful that the Future IS Clean campaign will further Australia’s uptake and success with clean technology.” - Graz van Egmond, CEO, Banksia Foundation
Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg are attempting the first round-the-world solar flight, an adventure to promote the use of clean technologies.
Clean technologies used on the solar aircraft could be used on the ground and reduce 50% of our world’s energy consumption... as of today. But for this, we need political courage and pioneering spirit.
We launched the #futureisclean initiative to create a federation of organizations pushing the replacement of old polluting devices by existing clean technologies.
Just like onboard Solar Impulse, solutions already exist to reduce energy consumption. We have gathered 357 organizations around this initiative. Some of them sent the solutions they wanted to promote at COP21.
The vote is now over, here are the top 5 solutions you voted for!
