PRESERVATION OF THE OZONE LAYER
16 SEPTEMBER

In 1994, the UN General Assembly proclaimed 16 September the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer, commemorating the date of the signing, in 1987, of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that deplete the Ozone Layer.

The ozone layer, a fragile shield of gas, protects the Earth from the harmful portion of the rays of the sun, thus helping preserve life on the planet.

Efforts have contributed to addressing climate change and protect human health and our Planet’s ecosystems.
