But what is this label all about?
To receive the “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution” Label, our solution was thoroughly assessed by independent experts. According to five criteria covering the three main topics of Feasibility, Environmental and Profitability. All labelled solutions are part of the 1000 solutions portfolio. The aim of this initiative is to encourage the adoption of more ambitious environmental targets and fast-track the implementation of these solutions on a large scale.
If an airplane has succeeded to fly day and night without fuel, then we can power our world on clean energy.

EcoTree reconciles sustainability and profitability by giving everyone the opportunity to invest in trees.
To engage a proper fight against climate change we need everyone to play along and take pro-environment actions, continuously. We offer a unique tree-planting investment solution, which makes an environmental-friendly action such as planting trees something simple, tangible, and especially something financially viable/profitable! In other words, EcoTree rewards being environmentally-friendly! We have successfully initiated a revolution in the "green" investments field by digitizing and democratizing investments in tree planting, which results in a concrete compensation of CO2 footprint and preservation of biodiversity!
The Solar Impulse Foundation

These solutions received the recognition following an assessment performed by external independent experts and based on verified standards for economic profitability and ecological sustainability.
