RSPCB sponsored awareness workshop on "Sustainability of ODS phase out, Kigali Amendment and India's way forward"
India has been making substantial efforts for protection of the Ozone layer and has also met all the compliance obligations of the Montreal Protocol. Also, India has played a key role in evolving consensus and finalization of Kigali amendment. As the effort of the Montreal protocol and Kigali amendment is to phase-out both the production as well as consumption of Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS), it is important to create awareness about the above issues, among the various user communities. The major objective of the workshop is to create awareness to the stakeholders on issues relating to ODS. The Specific objectives of the workshop are
1. Sensitising the stake holders on ODS phase-out activities in India including ODS rules and regulations
2. Educating about availability of commercial alternatives to ODS
3. Imparting knowledge about Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol for phase down of Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs)
4. Creating awareness about good-practices in Refrigeration and Air-conditioning, their servicing sector and building sector
