Description Tackling ‘short-lived climate pollutants’ (SLCPs) – including methane, black carbon, tropospheric ozone or hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) – is vital to reduce near-term global warming and improve human well-being.

Businesses taking action to reduce these emissions can deliver rapid and measurable benefits in air quality, public health and food security whilst also boosting economic growth and making a key contribution to global climate change mitigation efforts.

Objectives Companies making this commitment are taking action to reduce ‘short-lived climate pollutants’ (SLCPs) – including methane, black carbon, tropospheric ozone and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) – vital to significantly reducing near-term global warming and improving public health.
