Vietnam HFC inventory


In order to better understand the current and future role of HFCs as well as other HCFC alternatives in its economy, particularly given its recent HCFC phase-out commitments and in anticipation of the Kigali Amendment, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE) of Vietnam requested funding from the Climate and Clean Air Coalition  to conduct a national inventory of HFCs consumed.

By reviewing Vietnam’s climate policy and related national regulatory framework in conjunction with HFCs, this report aims to highligh the linkages between the major international conventions on ozone and climate towards maximizing impacts and co-benefits in future implementation.


The main objectives of the HFC inventory alone were to:

  • Develop a national inventory of HFCs that are imported, used and banked in Viet Nam
  • Estimate current and projected levels of HFC use
  • Report on the HFC distribution by sector and subsector
  • Calculate equivalent emissions of CO2
