A shared vision

Impactful partnership for sustainable home

Together with the Solar Impulse Foundation, we make accessible home solutions that have a positive impact on the environment and thus we contribute to turn the world carbon neutral. Adeo and the Solar Impulse Foundation objectives are to create homes that respect the needs of our planet, as well as those of its inhabitants, neighbours and the environment. A positive home is safe and secure, uses few resources, and adapts to the different phases of our lives.

In 2020, we launched our first alliance with the teams from the Solar Impulse Foundation and are very proud of the technological advances we are operating, with Solar Impulse teams specific and complementary abilities, in a spirit of partnership, by putting into practice our ambition and our values.
