Bertrand Piccard – The Climate Impulse – Adventure

15. February 2024 – Oliver Stoldt

Bertrand Piccard is fed up with eco-pessimism. Wherever we look, climate action has never been so urgent, and yet so divisive.

Bertrand Piccard wants to restore hope and encourage action with a new spectacular adventure.

Together with engineer Raphaël Dinelli, he wants to complete the first non-stop round-the-world flight in an environmentally friendly, hydrogen-powered aircraft.

Bertrand Piccard & Raphaël Dinelli: One Flight, One World, Zero Emissions

Named “Climate Impulse”, this historical flight planned in 2028 aims to be a flagship for climate action, showcasing how efficient solutions can set the world on a sustainable course.

Finding sustainable ways for humanity to function has never been so urgent; yet ecology divides and suffers from political demagogy all over the world.

Climate Impulse is in spirit and in practice the heir of the Breitling Orbiter, of Solar Impulse and of its Foundation, dedicated to the identification and promotion of clean and efficient solutions, good for the environment and good for the economy. The Climate Impulse aircraft is the child of that vision, one that will be the living proof that we can do better with less, carrying that message across the globe in 10 days. The intention is to revolutionise the skies and aviation while making a lasting contribution to the ecological transition.

Bertrand Piccard intend, similarly to what they did with the Foundation and will continue to do, to spark a global movement, to give hope, showcase solutions and bring pioneer spirit to the forefront of climate action.

Showing other ways of thinking is what has always defined Raphaël Dinelli and Bertrand Piccard, through their own achievements. Going beyond the obvious is what can and will make climate action a reality, one that federates through the opportunity it represents.

#BeTheImpulse – The Future is Green.

Syensqo (formerly part of Solvay) was the first and main technological partner to team up with Bertrand Piccard nearly 20 years ago with the Solar Impulse flight. This time again, Syensqo will put its extensive expertise and innovation power to the adventure by enabling the manufacture of the plane with tailor made materials.
