A massive movement from the public can be powerful. In this case, climate activists create awareness and express demand for environmentally friendly solutions. Choosing to live sustainably is also something that is largely up to the willingness of each individual. However, facilitating sustainable living is a subject of cooperation between companies, governments and the public. What we do at Ambee is an example of how a company can contribute. We at Ambee believe that a problem should be measured correctly before finding the best solutions. We measure air quality precisely and use that information to help create an informed society — both for the public, governments, and companies. Governments can facilitate larger policy trusts and make it economically beneficial to make sustainable solutions both for companies and the public. Two of the many ways this can be done is by improving public transportation and develop eco-friendly cities.
