Concrete solutions for a clean future
" 3 , 2 , 1 - let us combine forces for a significant contribution towards the society, environment and for a cleaner future. So that possibilities become realities." - Res Witschi, Head of corporate responsibility Swisscom
As national telecommunications partner, Swisscom is developing an ultra-light, energy-saving communications solution for Solar Impulse that will allow the pilots to remain in constant contact with the tracking station as well as transmit data and live images. We see a Switzerland where we join together in doing our part for sustainability. We believe that it is important to show that every little step is important. Therefore we promote the future is clean movement and enable young energy and climate pioneers in Switzerland to become active themselves: http://www.energie-klimapioniere.ch/. Our commitment to the environment, society and economy is an integral part of our corporate strategy.
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!
