#LearnSustainability: Montreal Protocol

Do you know what the Montreal Protocol is? We explain the concept and its meaning in this infographic

The Montreal Protocol, which came into force in 1989, is an international environmental pact which aims to protect the ozone layer, and in the last twenty years has managed to eradicate chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) for refrigeration, one of the main gases that cause the greenhouse effect.

Recently, about two hundred countries have agreed to reduce the use of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), the CFC substitute, which is also harmful to the ozone layer, so it is expected that it will be completely regenerate by 2050 if all countries commit to its goals.
