Consumption of all ozone-depleting substances (ODS) in ODP tonnes - 2007
Ozone depleting substances (ODS) are substances containing chlorine or bromine, which destroy the stratospheric azone layer that absorbes most of the biologically damaging ultraviolet radiation.The phasing out of ODS, and their substitution by less harmful substances or new processes, are aimed at the recovery of the ozone layer.The indicators signify progress made towards meeting the commitments to phase out the use of ODS in countries which have ratified the 1987 Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer and its Amendments of London (1990), Copenhagen (1992), Montreal (1997) and Beijing (1999).
