International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer

The theme for the 2016 International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer to be marked on 16 September is: Ozone and climate: Restored by a world united

The theme is complemented by the tagline: Working towards reducing global-warming HFCs under the Montreal Protocol

The theme for this year’s International Ozone Day recognizes the collective efforts of the parties to the Vienna Convention and the Montreal Protocol towards the restoration of the ozone layer over the past three decades and the global commitment to combat climate change.

“On this International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer, let us remember how much has already been accomplished, and commit to do more to protect our atmosphere. By working together, we can build a safer, healthier, more prosperous and resilient world for all people while protecting our planet, our only home.”
