On September 16th, the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer commemorated the 1987 anniversary of the signing of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer. Hailed as an example of exceptional international cooperation for the protection of the ozone layer, the Montreal Protocol became the first international treaty to achieve universal ratification. The Montreal Protocol expanded in October 2016 with the addition of the Kigali amendment. This amendment mitigates the impact on the Earth’s climate by substitutes of ozone depleting substances that are powerful greenhouse gases.
