Montreal Protocol

The Montreal Protocol is the world’s most successful environmental treaty. It now has universal ratification, meaning global participation. The document specifies many requirements and obligations for nations to follow in terms of phasing down or controlling the production of ozone depleting substances. These details and the text can best be seen at the United Nations Ozone Secretariate website link below:
