More from WCVB’s story.
Greentown Labs houses more than 200 climate technology start-ups One of the five companies that will highlight the work of the Prince and Princess of Wales is Sublime Systems, which produces carbon-neutral cement.
“When the calendar event landed in my in-box, like ‘Hold for the Prince and Princess of Wales,’ it really hit me,” said Leah Ellis of Sublime Systems.
The royals met with representatives of some of the start-ups in the Greentown Labs community.
Boston.com offers more on this story.
Inside, William and Kate asked questions about the lab and its history before meeting five current or former Greentown Lab-affiliated businesses:
- c16 Biosciences, a company exploring decarbonized alternatives for the consumer goods supply chain.
- QuantAQ, which is developing internet-connected air quality sensors that can test for air pollutants.
- Open Ocean Robotics, which is developing solar-powered autonomous boats that provide real-time ocean data. (Julie Angus, CEO and co-founder, showed the couple real-time data from a boat in the harbor in Victoria, British Columbia, where the company is headquartered. “Five knots? That’s pretty fast,” a surprised William looked at a computer monitor. “It’s amazing that It’s not capsized.”).
- Nth Cycle, a business working to decarbonize the critical mineral supply chain.
- Sublime Systems, a company behind low-carbon cement.

Her mother, Melissa Teixeira, added: ‘It was surreal, it was really spectacular. It was a real experience on a beautiful day in Somerville.
‘I think they surprised Henry as a British guard. Princesses are definitely great with kids.
‘She just complimented him great and he complimented her so it was a great experience.
‘Henry managed to mention his visit to London and he asked where George was and he said he was at school. He asked if she should stay at school and she said yes – and of course laughed.’

The Prince and Princess’ next stop was at Roca, a nonprofit that focuses on youth considered at high risk for becoming primary victims or drivers of violence.

Roca appears to deal with trauma and teach young people emotional regulation, giving them a buffer between their thoughts and their actions, he explained.
“The key is to create a safe environment for them to learn and practice this emotional regulation, because we believe that once you heal the trauma, you set the person free,” Baldwin said.
Roca has results to back up this approach: In Massachusetts, four out of five youths who come to Roca stop engaging in violence, and 70% of youth are not rehabilitated within three years, according to the organization’s website.
The couple listens to Roca. and from hello Engagement cover articles.
ROCA aims to reduce levels of trauma, violence and incarceration, create sustainable employment and improve parenthood. They work closely with critical public systems such as police officers, judges, corrections officers and child protective services to help develop policies and practices that create better outcomes for youth who are primary victims or drivers of violence.
They spoke with several men and women the organization had helped and met with leaders to learn about their intervention model and spend time with women in the Young Mothers program, current members and alumni of the Young Men’s program.
The royals spent time with young mothers in the charity’s crèche area.
