A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999



Item #d92mar95

In response to the latest findings on ozone depletion, President Bush pledged on February 11, 1992, that the U.S. would cease the manufacture of ozone-destroying substances by the end of 1995, four years earlier than previously scheduled. On February 22, environment ministers of the European Community agreed to the same deadline, although some of the EC countries favor an even earlier termination. Germany banned the sale of products containing CFC propellants in February, which applies to foreign products only, since German manufacturers voluntarily stopped using CFC propellants in August. Meetings of parties to the Montreal Protocol are scheduled for April in Nairobi and November in Copenhagen, where an advanced phase-out will be formally discussed.

An extensive special report on the status of phase-out activities in individual countries was published in Intl. Environ. Rptr., pp. 108-117, Feb. 26, 1992.
