Dr. Bertrand Piccard
Bertrand Piccard is the initiator and visionary behind Solar Impulse, the very first aeroplane capable of flying perpetually without fuel. It is in his DNA to go beyond the obvious and achieve the impossible.
As part of a legendary dynasty of explorers and scientists who conquered the heights and depths of our planet, Bertrand Piccard made history by accomplishing two firsts in aviation, circumnavigating the globe in a solar-powered aeroplane and before that non-stop in a balloon. The ocean depths and the stratosphere attracted his father and grandfather; the challenges of our time fascinate him. With his dual identities as a medical doctor and explorer, Bertrand has become an influential voice as a forward-thinking leader for progress and sustainability and a renowned inspirational speaker. Following his pioneering spirit in favour of the cause of renewable energies and clean technologies, he has now set off to select and label 1000 solutions that protect the environment in a profitable way and will then embark on a third round-the-world journey to deliver those solutions to decision-makers, encouraging them to adopt more ambitious environmental targets and energy policies.
