Under this treaty, the Article 5 countries committed to phase-out its ODS consumption. Furthermore, the Kigali Amendment was adopted by the 28th Meeting of Parties to the Montreal Protocol on 15 October 2016 in Kigali, Rwanda. Under the amendment, countries committed to cut the production and consumption of HFCs by more than 80 percent over the next 30 years. This phase down schedule will avoid more than 80 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions by 2050 —avoiding up to 0.5°Celsius warming by the end of the century.

With regard to the production sector, the costs of reducing emissions of HFC-23, a by-product from the production process of HCFC-22, by reducing its emission rate in the process, destroying it from the off-gas, or by collecting and converting it to other environmentally safe chemicals, should be funded by the Multilateral Fund (MLF) to meet the obligations of Article 5 Parties
