ANOTHER NEW BROCK & OLLIE VIDEO

The F-Gas Regulation and the Kigali Amendment
This new Brock & Ollie video explains the Kigali Amendment and how it relates to the F-Gas Regulation : The Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol requires countries to gradually reduce HFC use to reach a reduction of 80-85 per cent by the late 2040s. It is a good regulation that shows that industry is at the forefront of protecting the climate whilst providing important benefits to society like refrigeration, air-conditioning, foam and insulation.
