Policies to Limit Emission of HFCs, PFCs, and gaz sf6 in Japan

Japan has been implementing various measures to limit emissions of HFCs, PFCs and insulating gas through close cooperation between the government and industry since the Kyoto Protocol was adopted in 1997. As a result of the measures, Japan successfully reduced emissions of those gases by 26.2 percent from 48.2 million tons
