Long before the Paris Agreement, scientists, engineers, business men and women, public officials, academicians and non‐governmental organizations (NGOs) throughout the United States and the world were hard at work in solving the myriad of problems associated with anthropogenic climate change.

Now, with the legislative force of the Montreal Protocol in support of the Agreement’s reduction goals, it is time to bring these various communities of practice together to (1) leverage our many successes to date to inspire future innovations through ‘lessons learned’, (2) ensure that new atmospheric environmental regulations are timely communicated and economically implemented and (3) identify business opportunities for related sustainable development.
