European Parliament ratifies partial ban on F-gases

The European Parliament has adopted an agreement struck in December to phase-down the use of F-gases.
Members of the European Parliament voted 644 in favour, with 19 opposing and 16 abstentions.

The move has been welcomed by the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) and the European Environmental Bureau (EEB) as a significant step forward for the climate.

Clare Perry, head of EIA's Global Environment Campaign, said: 'This is a hugely encouraging lead from Europe in the fight against climate change. With the EU showing a progressive lead in this field, this decision should act as a catalyst for future international negotiations in pursuit of a global deal to address HFCs which, if achieved, could avoid emissions of up to 100 billion tonnes of CO2-equivalent by 2050.'
