The United Nations General Assembly in 1994 declared September 16 as the International Day for the preservation of ozone layer acceding to the Montreal protocol of 1987 and the Vienna convention for the protection of ozone layer.

The theme of World Ozone Day 2021 is ‹Montreal Protocol: Keeping Us, Our Food and Vaccines Cool›. Singer stepped forward to address this pressing issue with the launch of its trademark R600a refrigerant in 2012. This innovation saw Singer becoming the first company in Sri Lanka to adopt R600a technology in the refrigerant manufacturing process, in fact the first to do so in South Asia. Our efforts in early conversion of all our refrigerators to CFC free gases compelled the entire industry to follow-suit making total Sri Lankan Refrigerator Market almost zero ozone impact refrigerators.Since the introduction, Singer’s R600a refrigerant has a success story of selling more than 1.25million units, which accounts for a total energy saving of 1.3 Billion kWh. The introduction of R600a refrigerant goes down as one of the significant contributions to the ozone layer protection from a Sri Lankan company.  Having identified the potential benefits of R600a gas over CFC gas, Singer continued to expand its R600a refrigerant range.
