Résumé

The Kyoto Protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change was adopted on December 11, 1997. This Protocol will enter into force only when it is ratified by no less than 55 parties to the Convention including developed countries which account for at least 55% of the CO2 emissions for 1990 from that group. On August 5, 1998, 49 countries signed the Kyoto Protocol. The major provision of this Protocol is the commitment of industrialized countries to reduce their aggregate anthropogenic CO2 equivalent emissions of six greenhouse gases by at least 5% below 1990 levels in the period 2008-2012. There are several consequences and actions to prepare in the refrigeration, air-conditioning, and heat pumps sectors: reminder of the greenhouse effects of CFCs and HCFCs, defining basic data, reducing direct and indirect emissions, preparation of voluntary branch agreements and investigation of the efficacy and usefulness of economic instruments.
