With the support of the International Cleantech Network (ICN), our South West Hub, Greentech South (GTS), is now an official scout for the Solar Impulse Foundation’s 1000 Solutions Label initiative!

Established by the founder of the Solar Impulse Foundation, Bertrand Piccard, the Solar Impulse Label awards efficient, clean and profitable solutions with a positive impact on environment and quality of life and will be included in the 1000 Solutions Portfolio.

The Solar Impulse Label is for positive impact businesses bringing together protection of nature and financial viability through a strict assessment process made by a pool of independent experts. In collaboration with renowned institutions, Solutions applying to the Label must go through a neutral and certified methodology.

As Solar Impulse Foundation’s 1000 Solutions Label Scouter, Greentech South is here to help you apply for the Label and give you more information on the application process, the World Alliance of Efficient Solutions, and the benefits of having the label.

“Each time I speak of protecting the Environment to heads of state or government officials, they tell me that it is too expensive. This Label is a strong message to them: solutions exist and represent the biggest market opportunity of our century. An opportunity which cannot be missed.” 

– Bertrand Piccard

The Label has a number of benefits including:

  • Receive an internationally recognised reward
  • Access to international markets
  • Exclusive access to challenges and pitching events
  • Greater visibility through through promotion on Solar Impulse Foundation platforms
