Concrete solutions for a clean future
"UNEP is pleased to support the #FutureIsClean initiative. We know that a clean future cannot exist without clean technology, and I would like to con! gratulate the Solar Impulse team, who are proving with every mile flow! n that clean technology can achieve what was once thought impossible. Clean technologies also have the capacity to drive the green economy and environmentally sustainable economic growth in industries from construction to transport to energy. And with over 150 supporters of the movement already, the momentum to ensure that our future is clean is continuing to grow."
The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations system and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment.
Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg are attempting the first round-the-world solar flight, an adventure to promote the use of clean technologies.
Clean technologies used on the solar aircraft could be used on the ground and reduce 50% of our world’s energy consumption... as of today. But for this, we need political courage and pioneering spirit.
We launched the #futureisclean initiative to create a federation of organizations pushing the replacement of old polluting devices by existing clean technologies.
Just like onboard Solar Impulse, solutions already exist to reduce energy consumption. We have gathered 357 organizations around this initiative. Some of them sent the solutions they wanted to promote at COP21.
The vote is now over, here are the top 5 solutions you voted for!
