Bertrand Piccard

Psychiatrist and explorer Bertrand Piccard made history by accomplishing two aeronautical firsts – flying around the world non-stop in a balloon, and more recently in a solar-powered plane without fuel. He has long pioneered the thinking that ecology should be considered through the lens of profitability and that clean technologies are the market opportunity of the century. His current challenge, as Chairman of the Solar Impulse Foundation, is to identify 1000 profitable solutions to protect the environment and support clean growth.
