**About Aclima **
Aclima’s mission is to provide governments, businesses, and communities with a new class of environmental intelligence to reduce air pollution and climate-changing emissions.
Aclima was founded to deliver on its mission of protecting people and the planet by putting air pollution on the map, through an entirely new approach to environmental quantification and analysis. Since 2008, Aclima has invested in extensive R&D to pioneer the science of hyperlocal air quality measurement and analysis. In parallel, we’ve been building the capabilities required to engage and support local communities, and deliver products that meet the unique needs of policymakers and businesses.
The company has developed and validated its science and technology through international deployments, partnerships with leading scientific institutions, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and deep collaboration with both the public and private sectors. Aclima holds some of the earliest patents in this space, for networked, wearable and mobile air quality sensing and associated methodologies.
Aclima was recognized as a World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer, was named one of the prestigious Global Cleantech 100 companies, and our CEO Davida Herzl has been named one of Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People in Business. The company is headquartered in San Francisco, CA. For more information, visit www.aclima.io.
Our aim is to help people understand and act upon environmental data.
