Title: HFC Consumption Trends in A5 Countries
Description: As the planet warms, the need for sustainable cooling for all is growing simultaneously with the need to quickly phase down the production and consumption of powerful climate warming HFC under the 2016 Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol. The latest findings from Velders et al. (2022) find that full compliance with Kigali Amendment controls could hold future warming from HFCs to about 0.04C in 2100, compared to 0.28-0.44C from uncontrolled HFC growth. This event will present the findings of a new Study on the Impacts of HFC Consumption Trends in Article 5 Countries and engage in a discussion with MLF implementing agencies on how to achieve additional action to comply with the Kigali control schedule.
