Protecting the ozone layer while also preventing climate change
Forty years ago, scientists warned that a hole in the layer of ozone surrounding the earth could have serious effects on human health and the environment. This problem is being solved thanks to a global agreement to stop the use of ozone-depleting chemicals that damage the ozone layer. But now scientists are concerned that the substances used to replace these ozone-depleting chemicals are acting to trap heat inside the earth, exacerbating the greenhouse effect. Can policymakers protect the ozone layer while also helping prevent climate change?

Highlight Phase-down of fluorinated gases essential to reduce effect on climate
Fluorinated gases (F-gases) have been introduced as substitutes for ozone-depleting substances in many sectors, but they contribute significantly to climate change. The European Environment Agency (EEA) has today published a new report on their production, import and export, which contributes to tracking progress towards their phase-down.

Publication Fluorinated greenhouse gases 2014
Summary of data reported by companies on the production, import and export of fluorinated greenhouse gases in the European Union. This report is based on submissions for 2014, the first reporting year under the new F-Gas Regulation 517/2014. The new regulation requires, among other things, that companies report on produced, imported and exported quantities of fluorinated greenhouse gases, including mixtures.

Highlight Climate-forcing F-gases – new report published
Fluorinated gases (F-gases) are emitted into the atmosphere in relatively small quantities, but their effect on climate change is increasingly significant. These substances are very powerful greenhouse gases, with a warming effect thousands of times greater than CO2 in many cases.
