The company

We spend more than 90% of our time indoors, an environment that can be up to 10x more polluted than outdoors. Today, air pollution represents the leading cause of environmental mortality in the world. According to the World Health Organization, more than 8 million people die each year because of unhealthy air quality, including 4,2 million due to bad indoor air quality. Sensilla helps companies increase the safety and wellbeing of their teams, by monitoring and improving air quality whilst offering energy reduction strategies.
