Hudson’s commitment to the environment extends beyond its services. In fact, the company was one of the first refrigerant management companies to participate in the Chicago Climate Exchange and the first ozone depleting substances (ODS) destruction protocol. In 2009, we were part of the Climate Action Reserve working group that developed two comprehensive protocols for quantifying the emissions reductions from destruction of refrigerant gases that are no longer used.

In addition to the ODS destruction protocols, Hudson Technologies was a key stakeholder in the development of the 2015 American Carbon Registry protocol that allows for the development of carbon offsets through the recycling of HFC refrigerants rather than the purchase and use of virgin HFCs.
