30th Anniversary of the Montreal Protocol

On 19-20 September 2017, a symposium took place in Paris, France, on the occasion of the 30th Anniversary of the Montreal Protocol: From the safeguard of the ozone layer to the protection of the Earth Climate. The event was organised by the International Ozone Commission and endorsed by SPARC.

Hailed as an example of exceptional international cooperation for the protection of the ozone layer, the Montreal Protocol became in 2010 the first international treaty to achieve universal ratification. In October 2016, the Kigali amendment was added to the Protocol for controlling the growth of the substitutes of ozone depleting substances, some of which are powerful greenhouse gases and thereby mitigating their impact on the Earth’s climate.
