Terming India's proposal to amend the Montreal protocol as "unambitious", the Delhi-based green body CSE released a proposal that allows cutting of Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) consumption by 82 per c

Better economic growth can help close the greenhouse gas emissions gap, according to a new report released by the New Climate Economy, the flagship project of the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate.

This report was compiled by Ecofys to support The New Climate Economy (NCE) and the publication of a report on the role of international collaboration in climate action, which provides ten recommendations to catalyse international climate action.

India is following the Hydrochlorofluorocarbon Phaseout Management Plan (HPMP) as part of its international commitment under the Montreal Protocol to mitigate consumption of ozone depleting substances. This transition is almost complete in developed countries.

For a long time, climate action has been associated with cutting Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

The Indian government recently took a leading role in global efforts to address climate change by proposing a hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) phase-down amendment to the Montreal

HFCs have been widely used chemicals as substitute to Ozone Depleting Substances (ODSs). HFCs being non-ODSs are not controlled so far under the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer and its Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer.

India made a formal proposal to amend the Montreal Protocol to phase down the super greenhouse gas, HFCs, used primarily as refrigerants and to make insulating foams.

This paper explores the energy efficiency and power sector benefits of air conditioning companies in India to “leapfrog” and phase down unsustainable technologies based on chemicals with high lower-global warming potential (GWP) and move to a future based on climate-friendly and energy-efficient refrigerants.

The Minister for Environment, Forests and Climate Change, Mr. Prakash Javadekar said that Government’s initiatives, efforts, and action plans to pursue the clean and renewable energy path had put India in a leadership position in dealing with climate change issues.
