  • All signatory countries have been divided into three groups with different timelines to go about reductions of HFCs.

    First group: It includes richest countries like US and those in European Union (EU). They will freeze production and consumption of HFCs by 2018. They will reduce them to about 15% of 2012 levels by 2036.

    Second group: It includes countries like China, Brazil and all of Africa etc. They will freeze HFC use by 2024 and cut it to 20% of 2021 levels by 2045.

    Third group: It includes countries India, Pakistan, Pakistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia etc. They will be freezing HFC use by 2028 and reducing it to about 15% of 2025 levels by 2047.

    baseline years= 2012 for first group, level of hfc emmissions in 2012 that is..
    freeze years= years at which hfc production would be stopped. eg 2018 in first group.
