Illegal trade in refrigerants

The illegal trade in ozone-depleting substances and greenhouse gases used in refrigeration remains a significant obstacle to international efforts seeking to limit the worst impacts of climate change. We have almost 30 years of experience investigating and exposing this criminal trade and, with a steady increase in hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) smuggling in Europe as a result of an EU phase-down of these chemicals, we will continue monitoring and investigating this illegal trade, pushing for strengthened enforcement, working for better engagement in the issue from customs and campaigning for an effective licensing system for HFCs.
