The Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI) adopted their stance on revising the EU's legislative framework on F-gas emissions on the 1st of March, with 64 members voting in favor, 8 against, and 7 abstentions.

The MEPs aim to fasten the development of more eco-friendly solutions and provide assurance for consumers and investors by strengthening the Commission's proposed requirements that bar products containing F-gases from entering the single market.

Moreover, the proposal aims prohibiting the use of F-gases in sectors where alternative options that do not use F-gases, such as refrigeration, air conditioning, heat pumps, and electrical switchgear, are technologically and economically feasible.

However, the Commission needs to evaluate that the HFC phase-down would not endanger the RePowerEU heat pump deployment targets as the industry has to work towards replacing HFCs with natural alternatives.
