International Ozone Month

September 1, 2017 to September 30, 2017

The United Nations has declared the month of September as International Ozone Month and September 16 as International Ozone Day to highlight the critical need for all people and nations to work together to reverse the deadly thinning of the earth's ozone shield.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Montreal Protocol.

The #OzoneHeroes campaign to be launched on 14 September will seek to celebrate the major accomplishments of the Montreal Protocol in protecting the ozone layer and the climate, to increase public recognition of the success and impact of the Protocol, and to generate further support for the Protocol and its new mandate to phase down climate-warming hydrofluorocarbons under the Kigali Amendment, adopted in 2016.
