The high atmosphere's ozone layer gets thinned due to ozone layer depletion. This occurs when ozone molecules come into touch with chlorine and bromine atoms in the atmosphere and are broken down. Ozone molecules can be destroyed by one chlorine molecule. When exposed to intense ultraviolet radiation, some substances emit chlorine and bromine, which then helps to deplete the ozone layer. Ozone depleting substances are these substances (ODS). The most prevalent chemical that depletes the ozone layer is chlorofluorocarbons. The Montreal Protocol was developed in 1987 to prevent the use, manufacturing, and import of ozone-depleting compounds as well as to reduce their atmospheric concentration in order to safeguard the earth's ozone layer. The Ozone layer limits the amount of dangerous UV radiation that reaches the surface of the Earth. The ozone hole, a much bigger springtime decline in stratospheric ozone over Earth's Polar Regions, is another effect of ozone depletion. Every everyone should take action to save the ozone layer from being destroyed. Instead, we ought to use environmentally friendly goods. Keep air conditioners in good working order because when they break down, CFCs escape into the atmosphere. The objective of this study is to comprehend the ozone layer and the factors that contribute to its thinning. Another goal of this research is to identify the substances that are contributing to the ozone layer's deterioration. Environmental studies benefit greatly from this study. India is holding the G-20 presidency this year, and the country's environmental efforts serve as a model for other developed and poor nations alike. The same researcher has examined numerous journals on the environment, committee papers, and old laws and regulations. The researcher closed the research piece by offering his insightful advice to Indian lawmakers and national and international environmental organizations.
