ImpactAlpha, November 23 —The San Francisco-based company’s software platform and network of sensors measures and maps air quality (see, “Aclima raises $24 million to map air quality, globally”).

Roughly half of Americans live where the air is unhealthy. “The same emissions that are changing our climate are also polluting the air we breathe and creating a public health epidemic,” says Aclima’s Davida Herzl. 

Aclima secured more than $40 million in a Series B round led by Clearvision Ventures and with participation from Microsoft’s billion-dollar Climate Innovation Fund, Rethink Capital and other existing investors. The company will use the new funding to expand its footprint across North America.
