To aid in the fight to reduce these black-market trades, the European Fluorocarbons Technical Committee (EFCTC) has stepped in. The EFCTC is a Cefic Sector Group, sponsored by five major fluorocarbons manufacturers: Europe’s Koura, the U.S.’ Honeywell and Chemours, France’s Arkema and Japan’s Daikin. In 2019, Kroll partnered with the EFCTC to help disrupt and deter the illicit trade of HFCs in the EU
Kroll’s experience and global resources in forensic investigations and intelligence uniquely positioned the team to help the EFCTC penetrate the illicit economy, prevent encroachment and recover losses. Most notably, due to the detailed investigative work conducted by the Kroll team, the client was honored with the ECA Montreal Protocol Award for Customers and Enforcement Officers.
