Averting Climate Catastrophe: Our obligation to adopt an ambitious Kigali HFC amendment to the Montreal Protocol

As the 28th Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol (MoP28) gets underway in Kigali, Rwanda, the momentum to tackle dangerous climate change has never been greater.

One of the two thresholds to ratify the Paris Agreement has already been met and it is widely expected to come into force by the end of the year; a clear signal of the world's determination to stay well below 2°C and pursue efforts to limit temperature increase to 1.5°C.

The Montreal Protocol has a golden opportunity and an obligation to contribute to this global commitment with concrete action to phase down hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), the most destructive man-made greenhouse gases in circulation, and replace them with energy-efficient, climate-friendly alternatives.
