The Environmental Investigation Agency’s submission on ADP Work Stream 2 on pre-2020 ambition
HFCs currently represent around 1% of global GHG emissions. Although their contribution to climate forcing is still relatively small, it is expected to soar in the coming decades, with emissions of HFCs increasing at a rate of 10-15% per year. Unless action is taken, global HFC emissions could reach 5.5–8.8 GtCO2e per year in 2050, equivalent to 9–19% of projected global CO2 emissions under a business-as-usual scenario.
