Up to 31 million CO2eqT could have crossed EU borders illegally in 2019. Smugglers still benefit from uneven law enforcement in member states.
Due to this situation that has been fueling the black market for several years now, the European Fluorocarbon Technical Committee (EFCTC) has taken the firm decision to address a letter to the European Commission, political leaders and the media, in order to encourage them to urgently address this issue.
GRIT has given this open letter its full support by signing together with more than 50 signatories, who in total represent more than 50,000 companies. An initiative that will undoubtedly help to draw attention to the problem of illegally traded HFCs in Europe.
