Bridging the Emissions Gap

A briefing to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) for the 21st Conference of Parties (CoP21) in Paris.

With an ever-widening gap between what is required to limit global temperature rise to less than 2°C and existing mitigation pledges under the UNFCCC, countries must seize every opportunity to curb greenhouse gas emissions.

We urge all Parties to the UNFCCC to support these formal negotiations in 2016 under the Montreal Protocol in order to bring about a swift global agreement to address the consumption and production of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs).
