Policy Recommendations on the Proposal for an F-Gas Regulation

Suggested revisions to the EU F-Gas Regulation, jointly proposed by the Environmental Investigation Agency, the European Environmental Bureau, WWF and Climate Action Network Europe.

We argue that proposals contain the basic elements required to tackle hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) emissions but lacks ambition and advances an incomplete regulatory framework.

The briefing urges the EU to ensure specific policies targeting critical moments during the lifetime of HFC-based equipment, specifically bans, containment and recovery.
