Solar Impulse is a symbol for new technologies which we use to help protect the Earth's energy reserves. Bertrand Piccard,co-founder of Solar Impulsewith André Borschberg, has a bold vision:they plan to circle the globe in a solar plane, completely without fossil fuels. As national telecoms partner, Swisscom is sponsoring Solar Impulse.
Swisscom bears a special responsibility in Switzerland, which it takes seriously - on the economic, social and ecological level. Since 1998 we have had our own environmental management system and today we purchase more electricity from solar and wind energy than any other company in Switzerland. As partner of Solar Impulse, we look forward to contributing to a venture which will yield benefits for the future of our grandchildren.
