Aclima, Inc., a San Francisco, CA-based provider of an environmental intelligence platform, secured $24m in Series A funding.
The round was led by Social Capital with participation from The Schmidt Family Foundation, Radicle Impact, Rethink Impact, Plum Alley, Kapor Capital and First Philippine Holdings. In conjunction with the funding, Social Capital will join the board.
The company intends to use the funds to stationary and fleet-based mapping of hyperlocal air pollution and emissions in cities.
Led by Davida Herzl, founder and CEO, Aclima has developed a scalable air quality mapping platform that combines sensor technology, climate science, enterprise software and machine learning to generate high-resolution maps of emissions across pollutants –– from CO2 and methane to particulate matter.
Aclima has signed deployment, scientific and research relationships with leading public and private sector partners, including Google, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
