World Ozone Day 2020: 35 years of the Vienna Convention

Sep 16, 2020 14:58 IST

World Ozone Day is commemorated every year on the 16th of September and this year marks 35 years of the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer. The Convention, which was adopted in 1985, was a sort of agreement amongst various nations to adopt measures to combat depletion of ozone layer that protects us from harmful ultra violet rays of the sun. The Convention later took the form of the Montreal Protocol in 1987 and aimed to cut out 99% of all ozone-depleting substances. The theme this year is 'Ozone for life: 35 years of ozone layer protection'.
