Ozone Depleting Substances are materials like chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs).
Methane leaks from unplugged or improperly plugged oil and natural gas wells. Methane is a highly potent greenhouse gas.
Scaling up forest conservation and improved land-use practices can contribute up to a third of needed GHG mitigation.
Global economy-wide decarbonization is required to meet the Paris Agreement target of limiting warming to 1.5 degrees by mid-century.
Foam products are manufactured using blowing agents. HFCs are often used in foam blowing agents, and are extremely potent greenhouse gasses.
When organic material in landfills decomposes without oxygen, it generates both carbon dioxide and methane, a potent greenhouse gas.
HFCs are greenhouse gasses used in a wide variety of applications, including refrigeration and air-conditioning systems.
