Bahrain joins global effort against climate change as 160th country to ratify the Kigali Amendment

Bahrain is now the second Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) country to ratify the Kigali Amendment, following the United Arab Emirates.


On July 1, 2024, Bahrain ratified the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol. As a party to Group 2 of Article 5 of the Kigali Amendment, Bahrain is required to freeze HFC production by 2028 and reduce its HFC consumption by 85% by 2047, compared to its average HFC consumption from 2024 to 2026. Bahrain is also required to reduce its HCFC consumption by 65% compared to its baseline average consumption in 2009 and 2010.


Bahrain is now the second country in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) to ratify the Kigali Amendment, after the United Arab Emirates. This highlights the region's growing commitment to addressing environmental challenges and fostering sustainable development.


Congratulations to Bahrain for joining this crucial initiative! Let's continue to support and celebrate all nations working together to ensure a sustainable future.
