32 Years and Healing

Earth without Ozone is like a house without a roof

The theme for this year celebrates over three decades of remarkable international cooperation to protect the ozone layer and the climate under the Montreal Protocol. It reminds us that we must keep up the momentum to ensure healthy people and a healthy planet.

The Montreal Protocol has led to the phase-out of 99 per cent of ozone-depleting chemicals in refrigerators, air-conditioners and many other products.

The latest Scientific Assessment of Ozone Depletion completed in 2018, shows that, as a result, parts of the ozone layer have recovered at a rate of 1-3% per decade since 2000.

On this World Ozone Day, we can celebrate our success. But we must all push to keep hold of these gains, in particular by remaining vigilant and tackling any illegal sources of ozone-depleting substances as they arise.

The Kigali Amendment to the protocol, which entered into force in 1 January 2019 will continue to protect the ozone while phasing out HFCs. If the international community joins forces once again, the Amendment has the potential to avoid 0.4°C of global temperature rise by the end of the century. And by combining action to phase-down HFCs with energy efficiency improvements in the cooling industry, we can achieve bigger climate benefits.

Through Smart Campus Cloud Network (SCCN) initiative, the educational institutions and youth in particular are encouraged to remain vigilant of any sources of ozone-depleting substances.

Let's keep on working and healing together!
