There has been a significant reduction in the use of ozone-depleting chemicals (ODS) in Europe according to the European Environment Agency (EEA).
A report released by the EEA covers more than 200 ODSs which are covered by the Montreal Protocol, many of which are chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), halons and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs). The import, export, production and use of these chemicals, many of which are also greenhouse gases, has decreased over the last 5 years, so much so that the EU managed to meet its international targets for phasing out consumption in 2010, 10 years ahead of schedule.
