Governments, companies and institutions must urgently adopt more ambitious environmental and energy policies. They should stop compromising for minimal targets, but rather should base their negotiations and objectives on the reality of what clean profitable technologies can offer today. Not only for future generations, but for the current benefit of people, industry and the planet . — Bertrand Piccard, Solar Impulse Foundation Chairman and Pilot
Fluxus LLC is honored to become a Founding Member of World Alliance for Efficient Solutions launched by Solar Impulse Foundation, aiming to select 1000 solutions that protect the environment in a profitable way, and bring them to decision makers to encourage them to adopt much more ambitious environmental targets and energy policies.
The Solar Impulse Foundation initiated by Bertrand Piccard, is committed to envisioning ecology through the lens of profitability, and to proving that solving climate change – rather than an expensive problem – is a fantastic market opportunity.
The World Alliance members include start-ups, companies, investors, governments, institutions and more, all working together creating synergies that can fast-track the implementation of Efficient Solutions.
Since its inception in November 2017, the alliance’s team has been focusing on the steps taken to achieve the objectives of the Paris Climate Agreement, and “Building a global network” contributing to the synergy potential of federating diverse stakeholders towards a common goal.
For the World Alliance, Efficient Solutions are not limited to the production of renewable energy. They encompass products, services, clean technologies and processes that are profitable and sustain economic growth, while protecting the environment and optimizing the use of natural resources.
The selected solutions will help to achieve the 5 following United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), in a way that bridges the gap between ecology and economy.
- SDG 6: Clean Water and Sanitation
- SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy
- SDG 9: Industry Innovation and Infrastructure
- SDG11: Sustainable Cities and Communities
- SDG12: Responsible Consumption and Production
As an alliance member, Fluxus LLC aims at contributing to the solutions to United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 9 Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure through providing innovations in automation and supply chain efficiency, and United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 11 Sustainable Cities and Communities through delivering highly affordable, quality housing to underserved markets leveraging intelligent design and industrial scale manufacturing efficiency.
