Washington, DC – Today, the U.S. Senate voted to ratify the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol, a global agreement to phase down powerful climate-polluting hydrofluorocarbons, or HFCs. HFCs are synthetic chemicals used primarily in cooling, thousands of times more potent than CO2.

“This is a historic bipartisan victory. It’s been long overdue for the United States to unequivocally join the rest of the world in eliminating these man-made super pollutants. However, the real work ahead is actually realizing the promised climate benefits of the Kigali Amendment through robust implementation and enforcement,” said Avipsa Mahapatra, Climate Campaign Lead, Environmental Investigation Agency.
