14 / 07 / 2014

EPEE attended the 34th UNEP Open Ended Working Group of the parties to the Montreal Protocol held in Paris from 14 to 18 July.

EPEE Director General Andrea Voigt spoke at the Workshop on Policies and measures for HFC management about “industry’s reaction to signals from the Montreal Protocol, including chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) and HCFC experience and future challenges with HFCs”.

On 15 July EPEE also organised a side event “The New F-Gas Rules in Europe: challenges and opportunities” to raise industry awareness on the requirements introduced by the new F-Gas Rules.

The European Commission (DG Climate Action) provided an overview of the key elements of the new Regulation, whilst other speakers presented the impact of the new rules on industry, new trends and challenges.

All speakers’ presentations presentations are available on the UNEP Ozone Portal.
