Consistently September 16 is set apart as the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer.

"As we appropriately focus our energies around handling environmental change, we should be mindful so as not to disregard the ozone layer and remain caution to the danger presented by the illegal utilization of ozone-exhausting gases. The ongoing discovery of discharges of one such gas, CFC-11, advises us that we need to be kept observing and reporting systems, and improved guidelines and implementation, " said UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on the event of World Ozone Day.

As indicated by the Kigali Amendment, by staging down hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), which are intense atmosphere warming gases, the world can stay away from up to 0.4 degree Celsius of worldwide temperature ascend before the century's over, while proceeding to ensure the ozone layer.
