Businesses joins govts. to call for amendment to strictly regulate greenhouse gases

"Businesses join world leaders in push for stricter regulation of toxic greenhouse gases," 23 September 2016

Nations including the US, Chile and Canada, alongside more than 500 businesses, call for an amendment to Montreal Protocol to freeze use of toxic cooling agents hydrofluorocarbons…(HFCs), the potent greenhouse gases used in refrigerators and air conditioning…The countries also pledged to provide a further £80m in adaption funding to developing nations, where HFC use is rapidly increasing. The funding, provided by 16 donor countries and philanthropists, will be used to support improvements in energy efficiency…Securing a deal to limit their use is…critical for preventing dangerous global warming - an ambitious phase down could avoid up to 0.5 degrees of warming by the end of the century…Meanwhile, more than 500 national and international companies and organisations, including Ben & Jerry's, Microsoft, Nike and Unilever, alongside major refrigerant firms from around the world, also joined the call yesterday for action on HFCs, issuing a statement urging governments to start phasing out their use "as early as practicable"…
