AURAIA accurately forecasts air quality, climate, health and financial risks to support the reduction of emissions and health effects.

Our vision is that by providing accurate insights into the real health risks we can drive more sustainable investments with lower unseen risks, which will ultimately result in cleaner air for all.

AURAIA is the first to combine world class real time Air quality, Climate and Health forecasts with Quantum AI prediction to assess financial risks.

Air Quality & Climate Change: leading environmental health risks

Air pollution affects everyone

Air pollution causes 1 in 8 Global Deaths, which represents about 7 million premature deaths annually. World Health Organization, 2014. Air pollution effects ranges from minor respiratory irritation to chronic respiratory and heart disease, lung cancer, acute respiratory infections in children and chronic bronchitis in adults, aggravating pre-existing heart and lung disease, or asthmatic attacks. It is also linked with premature mortality and reduced life expectancy. World Health Organization, 2013.

In the US, approximately 48% Americans breathe unhealthy outdoor air, which causes about 200 000 premature deaths every year. American Lung Association 2015, MIT. 2013.

In Europe, approximately 90% Europeans live under harmful outdoor levels, which causes about 400000 premature deaths every year . European Environment Agency, 2015.

Climate Change has global impact

Climate change causes increased morbidity by amplifying heat-related illnesses, extreme weather-related injuries and mortality, chronic illnesses, asthma, respiratory allergies, and chronic respiratory disorders. It also causes premature deaths and will cost society Trillions of dollars to manage. Lancet 2009Lancet 2015, American Thoracic Society Survey 2015, Dietz 2016.

Climate Change & Air pollution are linked

Just as air pollution can have adverse effects on human health and ecosystems, it can also impact the Earth’s climate.  Air pollutants such as ground-level ozone and soot contribute directly to global warming and climate change.  Rising temperatures can also increase smog pollution and as the climate changes, unhealthy air pollution will get worse.
Fossil fuel burning is the major source common to both. Taking actions to better  reducing the pollution from fossil fuel burning will help improve air quality and address climate change. The choice we make now will determine our future.
