SolarStratos warmly welcomes aboard Bordier & Cie, a leading Swiss private bank, as main sponsor for its mission ‘To the edge of space’. By teaming up with the pioneering SolarStratos expedition, Bordier & Cie is committing to protecting the planet for the future by promoting a renewable energy source as a viable alternative to fossil fuels.
Innovating for future generations
“For 177 years, we have been protecting, nurturing and passing on the assets entrusted to us. It is therefore only natural for us to commit to protecting that most precious asset of all, namely our planet, and handing it down intact to the coming generations,” says Grégoire Bordier, Managing Partner. “We are delighted to support the SolarStratos mission, which embodies this ambition. I think Antoine de Saint-Exupéry perfectly illustrated this way of thinking when he said: ‘We don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.’”
Raphaël Domjan, pilot and founder of the mission, expresses his satisfaction about Bordier’s decision to partner alongside SolarStratos: “Faced with the climate emergency, we need to boost our scope to innovate and demonstrate a pioneering spirit. The entire SolarStratos team is delighted to share their values with the Partners and employees of the Bordier group.”
