India ratifies Kigali amendment

Following approval by the cabinet and prime minister Shri Narendra Modi last month, India has now ratified the Kigali Amendment to phase down HFC refrigerants.

India’s ratification, following closely behind China’s ratification, provides a huge boost to the Kigali Amendment which commits countries to cutting the production and consumption of HFCs by more than 80% over the next 30 years.

India’s economy is growing rapidly and, along with China and United States is seen as one of the world’s highest current and potential HFC emitting countries.

India will complete its phase down of HFCs in four steps from 2032 onwards with cumulative reduction of 10% in 2032, 20% in 2037, 30% in 2042 and 80% in 2047.
