OzonAction factsheet
The OzonAction Branch of the Law Division has been strengthening the capacity of governments – particularly the operational focal points for the Montreal Protocol, known as National Ozone Units – as well as industry, customs and enforcement agencies in developing countries to elaborate and enforce the policies required to implement the Protocol and to make informed decisions about alternative technologies and trade monitoring and control. OzonAction’s overall goal is to enable those countries to meet and sustain their compliance obligations under the treaty.

Global Ozone Award
UN Environment OzonAction, in cooperation with the World Customs Organization and the Ozone Secretariat, is launching the global Montreal Protocol award for customs and enforcement officers. The award recognizes the crucial role of customs & enforcement officers in implementing trade restrictions and bans for hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). Both groups of chemicals are widely used as refrigerants and foam blowing agents
GWP-ODP calculator
GWP-ODP Calculator
To select the appropriate calculator, firstly select the substance type, either Single Component Substances or Refrigerant Mixtures/Blends (e.g. R-400 and R-500 series). Slide the switch to use kg or tonnes. For single component substances , to convert between metric tonnes, ODP tonnes and CO2-equivalent tonnes (or kg), simply select a substance from the dropdown list and enter the known value in the appropriate field (if the substance has a GWP or an ODP of zero the relevant field is blocked).
What Gas?
The OzonAction "WhatGas?" application allows you to quickly find information on any specific refrigerant or refrigerant blend as well as other ozone depleting substances, hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and alternative chemicals. Information includes:
