The article reports that according to the EU environment commissioner, increased emissions of hydrofluorocarbons from refrigeration and air-conditioning, were one of the factors that caused greenhouse gas emissions from the EU-15 to rise by 0.3% between 2003 and 2004. Despite this, emissions from the EU-15 were still 0.9% lower than the base year of 1990, and this came even though the region recorded economic growth of 32% over the same period.
