To assist countries in planning and organising their Ozone Day activities on 16 September, we have prepared the following list of material which may be downloaded and used in raising awareness to the general public and to the Montreal Protocol family.
Produced by OzonAction, this timeline highlights key HFC phase-down dates.
In order to follow and facilitate the HFC phase-down schedules contained in the Kigali Amendment, the Parties, including both developed and developing countries, will have to implement certain measures. This booklet contains a recommended set of legislative and policy options which the developing (Article 5) countries may wish to consider for implementation. It is intended to be a guide/tool for countries. The booklet is available in English | French | Russian | Spanish.

UN Environment OzonAction, in cooperation with the World Customs Organization and the Ozone Secretariat, launched the global Montreal Protocol award for customs and enforcement officers.
The award recognizes the crucial role of customs & enforcement officers in implementing trade restrictions and bans for hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). Both groups of chemicals are widely used as refrigerants and foam blowing agents.
The award aims to provide recognition and encouragement to customs and enforcement officers and their respective organizations for successful prevention of illegal or unwanted trade of HCFCs / HFCs. This also includes equipment or products containing or relying on the use of HCFCs / HFCs.
Completed nomination forms with detailed case descriptions and photos should be received by the UN Environment regional focal points as soon as possible but at the latest by 31 December 2018.Click here for more information...
OzonAction, in cooperation with UN Women, is seeking to collect experiences and short ‘stories’ from women working in the refrigeration and air-conditioning (RAC) sector.
From female service technicians to installers, from designers to trainers, from manufactures to RAC associations, UN Environment OzonAction are looking to highlight your experience.
Being aware of the experiences of women working in the RAC sector and the opportunities available can encourage and inspire other women to consider careers in the sector and support girls to seek to follow a career path in this fast growing and important sector.
If you are a woman working in any part of the RAC sector, we encourage you to submit an entry. Deadline for submission: 6 September 2018. Click here for more information...
