Phasing Down Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs)

Phasing Down Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs)

The Council is among the pioneering institutions to begin India-focused research on phasing down hydrofluorocarbons [MS1] (HFCs). HFCs are far more potent as greenhouse gases than carbon dioxide. Over the years, The Council has pioneered business engagement and extensive analytics on HFCs in India. Our research includes a business case for phasing down HFCs, modelling India’s long-term HFC emissions, estimating costs of leapfrogging away from HFCs, understanding servicing sector challenges, and examining regulatory approaches and incentive schemes to encourage a faster transition away from HFCs. In 2016, The Council was privileged to support the successful and historic conclusion of many years of negotiations to phase down HFCs.
