The world is currently very busy reducing CO2 emissions. However, global warming is caused by many more greenhouse gases. Tackling these 'Non-CO2' greenhouse gases is in many cases more cost-effective than reducing CO2 emissions. In other words, more can be achieved with less money to reduce global warming.

Greenhouse gases include methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), fluorocarbons (CFCs, HFCs, SF6, etc.), black carbon, aerosols and tropospheric ozone (O3). They all contribute significantly to climate change.

This is why VVM Network of Environmental Professionals is organising the ‘International Symposium on Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gases’ for the ninth time, from 2 to 4 November 2022 in Amsterdam.

The central theme of this conference is the identification of game changers: measures that actually have the potential to reduce global warming. The impact of each proposed solution will be assessed on the basis of the latest scientific findings.

VVM invites submission of papers covering causes, effects and solutions of the environmental problems associated with non-CO2 greenhouse gases. These papers may report on science (from natural, social, technological or integrated sciences) and policy. The deadline for submission of abstracts is 1 February 2022.
