Key message

After the increase in the years 2014−2016, the emissions of F-gases caused by leaks from equipment decreased by 9 % in 2017. In the future, further reduction is expected as a result of a more intensive limitation of F-gases on the EU market. The target value of the OP GHG is only indicative because multiple amendments were made after the adoption of the OP GHG. Improvements to F-Gas Emissions inventory showed that past emissions were underestimated at the time of preparation of the OP GHG, and therefore exceeding the target does not necessarily indicate the non-implementation of the measures. In addition, new legislation was introduced at the EU level in 2014, introducing new measures.
