Executive summary: The Greenpeace Climate Vision's Zero Emissions Pathway for f-gas emissions builds further upon the Greenpeace call for a complete phase-out of HFCs and has two main strands:

- a total phase-out of HFCs as a complement to the already agreed phase-out of HCFCs in the Montreal Protocol;

- implementation of technological innovation to strongly reduce the production of f-gases as results of industrial processes, as identified in the EPA report on mitigation potential for non-CO2 emissions .
