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.

A Week of Climate Action on HFCs and Cooling
09/17/2018
HFCs used in cooling were a hot topic at the Global Climate Action Summit last week in San Francisco. With momentum building for subnational actors like cities, states, and businesses to drive action forward on climate, we have the opportunity to tackle the issue of how we keep cool without warming the planet - by phasing down superpollutant hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and identifying new approaches to maximize energy efficiency as global demand for cooling increases.
EIA Statement: China Takes Action on Illegal CFC-11 Production and Use Following EIA Report
08/06/2018
China has identified illegal production and use of CFC-11 as part of ongoing investigations following the July publication of an EIA report, Blowing It, that revealed Chinese companies using CFC-11 – a banned ozone-destroying chemical – in blowing agents used for producing foam insulation.

Tip of the Iceberg: Implications of Illegal CFC Production and Use
11/02/2018
Just six months after scientists revealed unexpected and high emissions of CFC-11, much has been done to address this enormous environmental crime. China has responded with an unprecedented nationwide enforcement action and has shut down at least one illegal CFC-11 production factory. The Parties to the Montreal Protocol unanimously responded at OEWG-40 to the crisis and will agree vital next steps at the 30th Meeting of the Parties in Quito, Ecuador.
Blowing It: Illegal Production and Use of Banned CFC-11 in China's Foam Blowing Industry
