Solar Impulse Efficient Solution label

ampliTex™ and powerRibs™ sustainable lightweighting technologies become part of Solar Impulse’s #1000solutions.

We are thrilled that our sustainable lightweighting solution for automotive interior panels was awarded the Solar Impulse Efficient Solution label. Our solution enables automotive interior panels to be up to 40% lighter while drastically reducing the use of plastic, thanks to our proprietary ampliTex™ and powerRibs™ natural fibre reinforcements.

 

About the label

Through the Solar Impulse Foundation, Bertrand Piccard has launched the challenge to select 1000 solutions that can protect the environment in a profitable way. The goal is to present them to decision-makers and fast-track their implementation in order to address environmental challenges while enabling economic growth.

It is one of the first Labels for positive impact businesses, and brings protection of nature and financial viability together. Solutions applying to the label must go through a neutral and certified methodology. The strict assessment process is conducted by a pool of independent experts.
