EIA Briefing to the UNFCCC COP22

In October 2016, the Parties to the Montreal Protocol adopted the Kigali Amendment on hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), which commits the world's nations to significantly reduce consumption and production of HFCs. The Amendment could avoid emissions of well over 70 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent by 2050, which marks an historic achievement and brings significant impetus to the Paris Agreement which comes into effect in November 2016.

This briefing produced by EIA details the Kigali Amendment's relationship to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) as November marks the 22nd Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC. Learn about the legal relationship, differentiation, and climate benefits of both agreements in our briefing above.

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.

Preventing emissions of fluorinated refrigerants such as HFCs from “F-gas banks” is the single biggest near-term strategy to reduce greenhouse gases. The IPCC special report on limiting global warming to within 1.5˚C also underlined need for faster and deeper HFC emission reductions beyond those anticipated under full implementation of the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol.

Information obtained by the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) demonstrates conclusively that the use of CFC-11 in China’s rigid polyurethane (PU) foam insulation sector, in particular in the building and construction subsector, is widespread and pervasive. CFC-11 is used as a foam blowing agent for the manufacture of molded foam panels and spray foam used for insulation purposes
