The Parties to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer agreed to phase down HFCs on 15 October 2016 in Kigali (Rwanda). The UN Environment OzonAction developed a video to find out from renowned international scientific, health, technical, financial and national experts about the background and significance of this Kigali amendment.

In this interview, AREA Vice-President International Affairs Marco Buoni explains the opportunities offered by the Kigali amendment, notably in terms of energy efficiency and jobs creation in particular in developing countries. He also stresses the importance of training on alternative refrigerants that present different properties to those of HFCs.
