Today during the official COP27, Solar Impulse Foundation releases its Solution Guide for Cities. This guide offers a compilation of clean and profitable labeled solutions implementation case-studies designed to help and inspire urban centers to quickly build and implement effective decarbonization programs. Our Lungs of the City approach is one of these labeled solutions in the Solution Guido for Cities!
The goal of the Solution Guide for Cities is to help decision makers harness the economic opportunities of the ecological transition whilst reducing their environmental footprint. The guide addresses mayors, city planners and public administrations, but also private companies or citizens. It aims to inspire them by demonstrating that sustainable solutions exist and that they can make use of them to reach their environmental goals in an economically profitable way.
Bertrand Piccard from Solar Impulse Foundation: “Proving that profitable solutions to protect the environment exist was critical to moving the debate forward, but it was far from the only piece of the puzzle. It is now in the political and regulatory realm where we must progress. We are launching this initiative to aid that effort, show what is possible, and shine a light on benefits that exist in doing so”.
The Solar Impulse Foundation is an environmental non-profit founded in 2003 by Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg in collaboration with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne. In 2018, Bertrand Piccard and the Solar Impulse Foundation designed the Solar Impulse Solution Label to shed light on existing solutions that are both clean and profitable and have a positive impact on quality of life. Now there are more than 1000 clean and profitable solutions to protect the environment. ENS received this label for Lungs of the City back in 2019.
