Chapter Summary

The earlier Protocols to the Long Range Convention on transboundary air pollution were all singular with their focus on the individual pollutants of SO2, NOx or VOCs. With the ozone regime, in the run-up to the Vienna Convention, it was suggested that a cumulative approach be adopted for controlling ozone depleting substances (ODS). The furtherance of a cumulative approach is evident in the Montreal Protocol, whereby it was agreed in Article 3 that with the calculation of control levels of ODS production, each Party shall, 'multiply its annual production of each controlled substance by the ozone depleting potential specified in respect of it in Annex A, Annex B, Annex C or Annex E and add together, for each such Group, the resulting figures'. The climate change regime is unique in having both a net and comprehensive approach to greenhouse gas accounting.
