Ukrainian companies to report greenhouse gas emissions with fluorine

This will help mitigate the greenhouse effect and the negative impact on the planet's ozone layer

In Ukraine, companies that work with fluorinated greenhouse gases and ozone-depleting substances must keep records of information on their use.

Such norms are provided for by the Procedure for Maintaining and Submitting Reports by Operators of Controlled Substances, which has entered into force, the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources reports on Facebook.

It is noted that from now on, companies are required to keep records of information that should cover all stages of the life cycle of fluorinated greenhouse gases and ozone-depleting substances. That is, from the initial movement across the border to the final disposal or recycling.

Companies have to report on such activities according to the governmental Form No. 992 of September 23, 2020.

The report explains that annual reports on emissions of such substances will help:

  • create a database for analysis and making informed decisions about reducing the impact on the environment now;
  • to develop and implement new technologies and work methods that would have a less negative impact on the ozone layer and the greenhouse effect.

Earlier, EcoPolitic wrote, that the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources has developed a draft Strategy for the formation and implementation of state policy in the field of climate change for the period up to 2035 and announced its discussion.

As EcoPolitic previously reported, The European Parliament approved the revision of the EU Regulation on F-gases and the gradual ban of fluorine-containing greenhouse gases until 2050.
