Concrete solutions for a clean future
"The Foundation 2° and its sponsors are committed to a climate-friendly and market-based economy. Solar Impulse, the first solar-powered plane, shows that technology is available to fight climate change and develop innovative solutions that do not cost the earth. We want concrete actions for a clean future!" - Sabine Nallinger, Vorständin, Stiftung 2°
The Foundation 2° - German CEOs for climate protection - is the German business voice for effective and market-based climate protection. Initiated and funded by 11 CEOs and their companies, the Foundation has a clear goal: supporting climate policies to limit average global warming to 2° above pre-industrial levels. FutureIsClean shows that technological solutions are already available to cut our greenhouse gas emissions - as our companies also prove with their efficient and low-carbon solutions.
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!
