Fluorinated greenhouse gases – review of EU rules (2015-20) | Consultation Period 15 September 2020 - 29 December 2020
Fluorinated gases (‘F-gases’) are man-made greenhouse gases used in various products and appliances (e.g. fridges, air-conditioning units). Their emissions contribute to climate warming.
In 2014, the EU adopted rules to reduce F-gas emissions significantly.
This initiative will review these rules and update them in view of:
(*) the European Green Deal and climate law
(*) recent international obligations on hydrofluorocarbons/HFCs (Montreal Protocol)
(*) progress made and lessons learned.
