If you are passionate about minimizing your carbon footprint, the Geco air app helps you measure pollution based on your mode of transport. From IFP Energies Nouvelles in France, the mobile app tracks how much pollutants are produced from every trip the user takes.

The app uses the GPS tracking system in your smartphone plus a pollution-calculating algorithm to provide you with a point-based ranking. Before embarking on their journey, uses select their mode of transport, and the Geco air app will monitor carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, fine particles and nitrogen oxide emissions released during the ride. The application is also capable of recognizing different driving styles and suggests ways to reduce emissions.

This sustainability initiative indicates how air-based pollution can be addressed on an individual basis.
