Deal reached on reducing fluorinated gas emissions in the EU

On Thursday, Parliament and Council reached a provisional deal to further cut fluorinated gases emissions, in line with EU and global climate goals.

At Parliament’s request, the deal foresees the goal of a zero hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) target by 2050, including a trajectory to reduce the EU consumption quota between 2024-2049 (Annex VII). Phasing out HFCs consumption in the EU is a clear market signal and would align the updated rules with the EU’s 2050 climate neutrality goal.

Negotiators agreed on strict requirements that prohibit the placing on the EU market of products containing F-gases (Annex IV), to stimulate the uptake of more climate-friendly solutions and to provide certainty for manufacturers and investors.
