Kyoto Protocol Day

February 16th is celebrated as Kyoto Protocol Day, marking the day this environmental agreement officially took effect. On this occasion, governments worldwide renew their commitment to reducing environmental pollution.

While the Kyoto Protocol was adopted on December 11, 1997, its implementation began on February 16, 2005. The protocol mandates countries to fulfill their targets primarily through national measures, complemented by three market-based mechanisms designed to assist in meeting these goals.

The Doha Amendment to the Kyoto Protocol sets the objective of reducing greenhouse gas emissions to at least 18% below 1990 levels by the year 2020.
