A London-based tech start-up is developing a secretive tool designed to limit the impact of air pollution in major cities.
Husband-and-wife team Jamie and Marie-Alexandrine Burrows this week launched Vertical Future, a company backed by HSBC, which aims to tackle the negative effects of urbanisation and make our cities a “healthier place to live”.
The company’s digital product to monitor and reduce air pollution is currently in development with a prototype expected by August 2017.
“We want to make cities better for our children,” Mr. Burrows said.
“Our various urban initiatives are long-term responses to tackle the negative effects of urbanisation. To promote fast and sustainable growth, we are looking to work with research organisations, investors, government, and third sector organisations that share similar views on health and urbanisation,” he added.
