Supporting Airlabs Mission

Founded in 2014, Airlabs is developing clean air solutions for vehicles, buildings and cities.

Airlabs technology has been used to create clean air zones at London’s Marylebone Railway Station, in the Stella McCartney store on Old Bond Street and was used in Michael Pinsky’s ‘Pollution Pods’ installation at Somerset House.

How Barclays supports Airlabs

  • Having established a deep partnership from day one, Barclays understands Airlabs’ inspiring vision, and through our breadth of industry connections we’ve made useful introductions to support this innovative company.

  • Barclays provides Airlabs’ day to day banking and has started to lay the foundations for additional financial support.

  • To help tackle London’s concerning air pollution issue, for 12 weeks (3 July - 15 September 2019) we partnered with Airlabs to put a new fleet of clean air cabs on the streets of London.

  • Ten electric black cabs have been fitted with Airlabs’ unique nano-carbon technology, which is able to remove up to 95% of pollutants from inside the cab within 10 minutes.


Our relationship with Barclays goes much deeper than banking.

Marc Ottolini, CEO, Airlabs
