The project is part of a larger initiative, which helps the Government of Georgia to comply with the provisions set by the Montreal Protocol. We assist in the process of phasing out the consumption of ozone-depleting substances (ODS), raising public awareness and delivering comprehensive progress reports to the interested parties.

What We Do

We provide assistance in:

  • Conducting all necessary preparatory activities for the freeze of the most harmful ozone depleting substance - Hydrochlorofluorocarbons' (HCFCs) 
  • collecting and analyzing data over ODSs consumption nationwide;
  • preparing HCFCs Management Plan;
  • initiating public discussion on ozone-related issues and disseminating information on new technologies and ODSs alternatives.
