In 1987 the global agreement the Montreal Protocol on Substances That Deplete The Ozone Layer was signed. Since then, it has seen 8 revisions and has been ratified by 197 countries.
These countries are committed to taking action to stop the production and use of CFCs, Halon, and other ozone depleting substances to protect the ozone layer. The most recent amendment, the Kigali Amendment calls for the phase down of Hydrofluorocarbons which subsequently expands the scope and ambition of the Protocol.
