The parties of the Montreal Protocol met in Vienna to discuss the energy-efficiency opportunities of phasing down HFCs

The workshop, held on 9-10 July, was organised by the United Nations ahead of the 40th Open-ended Working Group of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol (OEWG) in Vienna, Austria (11-14 July).

The Parties to the Montreal Protocol – an international treaty in place since 1987 to phase out and/or phase down ozone-depleting substances used as refrigerants (CFCs, HCFCs, and since 2016, HFCs) – gather twice a year to monitor, identify barriers to and take decisions regarding the implementation of what has become one of the world’s most successful international environmental treaties.

The workshop, entitled ‘Energy efficiency opportunities while phasing down hydrofluorocarbons’, showcased the technology potential, market trends and policy recommendations to enable the Parties to the Montreal Protocol to support more energy efficient, lower GWP refrigerant-based equipment.
