St Lucia Ratifies the Kigali Amendment

St Lucia, the eastern Caribbean Island, has become the 128th country to ratify the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol.

This means that they agree to phasedown the use of HFCs (Hydrofluorocarbons) through cutting their production. All 197 parties agreed that the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol will commit countries to cut their consumption and production of HFCs by 80% over the next 30 years.

By 2050, it is estimated that the amendment will prevent up to 80 billion tonnes of CO2 equivalent emissions.
