It also underlines the stringent selection process we undertake at Brigade REAP to identify start-ups that actually address real world issues. Indoor air can be up to 3-5 times more polluted than outdoors and having clean air can lead to up to 10% improvement in employee productivity and prevents diseases caused by long-term exposure to air pollution. This initiative is also another step in the direction of ensuring health and hygiene in the workspace in addition to touchless entry, thermal scanning, UV-light based sanitization etc.”

It is a proud moment for us to install our proprietary technology at our mentor’s Head Office, Orion Mall by Brigade and Buzzworks. Our zero-capital expenditure business model and clean air guarantee has been one of the key selling points for us. We now manage clean air in around 2.5mn sq. ft. in the country. Our current focus is going beyond Covid and going forward, we are looking to expand our footprint to other industry verticals as well” said Aayush Jha, CEO and Co-Founder, Clairco.
