Month for Promoting Ozone Layer Protection Action

August 31, 2007

The Japanese Government designated September as the month for promoting ozone layer protection action in recognition of the adoption of the "Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer" on September 16, 1987. During this month, national and local governments make intensive efforts toward increasing public awareness of ozone layer protection and fluorocarbon countermeasures, including the amended Law concerning the Recovery and Destruction of Fluorocarbons that will come into force this October.
