ANTENNA TECHNOLOGIES HAS FOUNDED ÉLÉPHANT VERT, A COMMERCIAL UNDERTAKING

ÉLÉPHANT VERT does not just sell goods and services. It also aims to develop a wide range of bio-inputs and to increase farmers’ incomes, in line with the Foundation’s goals.

Antenna Technologies is a Swiss public utility foundation registered with the Federal Supervisory Board for Foundations.

Its economic development model complies with the Supervisory Board’s guidelines, which state that foundations’ assets must be used in accordance with their purpose. Every year, the Supervisory Board inspects the foundation’s management reports.

The foundation works in several fields
  • Antenna cultivates and disseminates Spirulina, a microalga with exceptional nutritional value, to battle malnutrition locally.
  • Antenna has developed a powerful and affordable solar lighting kit for homes without electricity.
  • Antenna works to combine scientific research and traditional medicine to give destitute populations access to healthcare.
  • The WATA device and the WATASOL approach offer a local solution for safe water treatment and disinfection.
  • Local production of biofertilizers and biopesticides helps small-scale farmers and strengthens local food security.
  • Microcredit helps to create income-generating activities and the acquisition of technologies in developing countries.
