We need to embrace clean technologies, not because they are “eco-logical,” but because they are “logical.” They are a way to bridge the gap between ecology and economy.
Even if climate change didn’t exist, energy efficient technologies would make sense: to create jobs, generate profit and boost sustainable growth while also reducing CO2 emissions and protecting natural resources.
The Alliance is committed to advancing the cause of Clean Technologies worldwide and encouraging their global implementation as a way to set the world on the path of sustainable development and improve the quality of life on Earth.
The Alliance brings together the start-ups, companies, institutions and organizations producing, implementing or supporting the use of Clean Technologies with the goal to create synergies and share knowledge in order to improve the overall value chain.
The Alliance demonstrates concrete and tangible solutions to support governments, corporations and institutions in reaching their environmental and health targets, depending on their specific situation.
As one of the direct legacies of the Solar Impulse project, the World Alliance for Clean Technologies is fully administered by the Solar Impulse Foundation.
The launch of the Alliance considered a key moment of COP22 by the UNFCCC
In its closing press release, the UNFCCC highlighted – among the massive financial commitments and the 2018 deadline to complete the rule book for the Paris Agreement – many new initiatives as positive outcomes of COP22, including the launch of the World Alliance for Clean Technologies.
The World Alliance for Clean Technologies was launched by the Solar Impulse Foundation at COP22!
Less than four months after Bertrand and André completed the epic adventure of flying around the globe with no fuel, we – that is to say the Solar Impulse Foundation – today launched the World Alliance for Clean Technologies in Marrakech.
