Montreal Protocol (Legacy)

Entering into force in 1989, the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer seeks to reduce the production and consumption of substances that harm the ozone layer by gradually phasing them out of use. The treaty is organized around several types of halogenated hydrocarbons that are of particular concern in terms of ozone health. Presently, more than seventy chemicals are prohibited under the protocol.
