Public pressure plays a large role in encouraging corporations and policymakers to take action. EIA provides resources for individuals, communities, and grassroots groups to foster climate activism focused on reducing super pollutant emissions.
Hydrofluorocarbons, or HFCs, are ‘super pollutants’ – human-made greenhouse gases with global warming potentials thousands of times higher than carbon dioxide.
They were introduced to replace the gases that caused the ozone hole and are used mainly as refrigerants in cooling systems – from our fridges, cars, and home air conditioners to factories and supermarkets. Today HFCs are the fastest growing greenhouse gases in the world.
From pushing companies to address their climate impacts to advocating for strong policy on these harmful gases, there are many ways to get involved.
