Fluorinated greenhouse gases (F-GHGs) are among the most potent and persistent greenhouse gases (GHGs) contributing to global climate change. These gases play a vital role in the manufacture of flat panel displays--most commonly liquid crystal display (LCD) panels--that go into televisions, computer monitors, and many other display products. The overall climate impact of the millions of display products used can be greatly reduced if suppliers of these components take steps to mitigate release of these F-GHGs to the atmosphere. While progress is underway, your awareness and support as a brand, retailer, or institutional buyer can expedite this effort. This webinar explained the manufacturing processes which release F-GHGs into the environment, how LCD suppliers are working to reduce their emissions, and the steps participants can take to support further improvements.
