World Ozone Day 2023: Preserving Our Shield

The Importance of Ozone

The ozone layer absorbs the bulk of the Sun’s harmful ultraviolet radiation, protecting living organisms.

In the 1970s, scientists discovered the ozone layer was depleting due to harmful chemicals like HCFCs and CFCs.

A Global Concern

The Montreal Protocol

In 1987, nations united to sign the Montreal Protocol, limiting the use of ozone-depleting chemicals.

Thanks to global efforts, the ozone layer is on a path to recovery, but the journey continues.
