Phasing down HFCs

We can slow global warming and sea-level rise by reducing super climate pollutants called hydrofluorocarbons or HFCs. Cutting HFCs will avoid half a degree of global warming by the end of the century. This would be a big contribution to the historic 2015 Paris Agreement. Find out more about reducing HFCs and why it matters with this video which is narrated by Durwood Zaelke of the Institute of Governance and Sustainable Development. Watch our explainer video about HFCs.
