Air pollution is one of the biggest threats for people living in cities causing 8million deaths each year.
It's an amazing example of how we can use the millions of years of development, that nature is providing us and coping it with high tech.
Especially problems as Greencitysolutions is tackling that involve a variety of stakeholder's as air quality, have one problem:
It’s hard to find people that pay for good air quality as it is hard to finance ocean cleanups and other multisystem problems.
As bad air quality is not caused by one individual, company, or state, Peter and his team needed to find a valuable business case. Just having a sustainable and green idea, can get you at some conferences and people get excited, but when it really comes to fight air pollution there is more needed then just goodwill Peter says.
This episode especially interesting because Peter and his team have found a valuable business case with Greencitysolutions that allows them to get from a “feel-good product” for some companies that want to become a bit greener, to an actually scalable solution that has the potential to provide us with clean city air.
