On this day in Canadian history (September 16th, 1987), an international convention met in Montreal and negotiators from 23 of the world’s major industrial nations signed a treaty to slow down global chlorofluorocarbon (CFCs) production in order to restore atmospheric ozone. One of its most important architects was Egyptian scientist Mostafa Tolba (1922-2016). The Montreal Protocol, a treaty designed to save the Earth’s ozone layer by calling on nations to reduce emissions of harmful chemicals by the year 2000, was amended in 1990 and 1992. In 1991 a fund was established to help developing countries meet their obligations. By 2016, 197 nations had signed the Montreal Protocol.
The Montreal protocol was signed September 16th, 1987 to reduce use of chemicals identified as harmful to the ozone layer.
