Montreal Protocol, 1987-1997 : global benefits and costs of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer : En40-565/1-1998E

Signed on September 16, 1987, the Montreal Protocol committed the original signatories to a schedule of reductions in the use of Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS). The Protocol, subsequently signed by 163 countries as of March 1997, became effective on January 1, 1989. Since that time, a series of amendments (London, 1990; Copenhagen, 1992; Vienna, 1995) have strengthened the original Protocol in terms of the number of substances covered and the speed and extent of reductions required.--Page 5 In this report, the evidence on the impacts of the Montreal Protocol provides the base information on which both the benefit and cost assessments are built... This report also assesses the incremental costs of the Montreal Protocol relative again to the alternative of no controls in which ozone-depleting substances would have continued to be used at historical rates of growth of consumption.--Page 1-2
