NASA/Alex Gerst Preserving the Ozone Layer On 16 September, the world will mark the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer . (...) But the ozone layer is not immune to harmful human activities. (...) A successful reduction in HFCs in the atmosphere can avoid up to 0.4 degree Celsius of global temperature rise by 2100, while continuing to protect the ozone layer.  For humans, the Montreal Protocol has potentially helped to prevent up to 2 million cases of skin cancer globally each year by 2030 and resulted in an estimated US$1.8 trillion in health benefits, mostly in skin cancer treatment alone.

Overexposure to sunlight causes harmful effects on the skin, eyes, and immune system. Experts believe that four out of five cases of skin cancer could be prevented, as UV damage is mostly avoidable. (...) Often not all of the sun damage will be fully repaired by the body's defence system, so it will gradually cause skin ageing over the years and may lead to skin cancer. (...) Thanks to measures taken under the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, the destruction of the stratospheric ozone layer has been halted.

At present, large parts of Europe can experience UV index values in excess of 8, which is a “Very High” rating and means that a sunburn can occur in as little as 15 minutes depending on the type of skin. Ozone Layer Globally, it is estimated that over 1.5 million cases of skin cancer (melanoma and non-melanoma combined) were diagnosed globally in 2020. (...) Skin cancer can result from overexposure to the sun, so it is imperative for everyone to remain vigilant and ensure they protect themselves adequately with hats and sunscreen. (...) The higher the index value, the greater the potential for damage to the skin and eye, and the less time it takes for harm to occur.

Its depletion has led to heightened exposure to UV-B radiation increasing the risk of skin cancer, cataracts and suppression of the immune system. (...) Controls implemented under the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer have enabled the global community to avoid millions of cases of fatal skin cancer and tens of millions of cases of non-fatal skin cancer and cataracts. For example, the United States estimates that by the year 2065, efforts to protect the ozone layer will have prevented more than 6.3 million skin cancer deaths in the nation and saved an estimated US$4.2 trillion in healthcare costs over the period 1990–2065.

(...) The report, published jointly by UNEP and the UN World Meteorological Organization ( WMO ) and released today on the UN International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer, is the first comprehensive update in four years on the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer and the Montreal Protocol phasing out chemicals which accelerate both ozone layer damage and climate change. “It (the Protocol) has protected the stratospheric ozone layer from much higher levels of depletion by phasing out production and consumption of ozone depleting substances,” said the report, written and reviewed by some 300 scientists and launched on the UN International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer.
