Although CFCs are greenhouse gases, they are regulated by the Montreal Protocol, which was motivated by CFCs' contribution to ozone depletion

To the best of my knowledges CFCs are NOT  greenhouse gases . Rather, they're detrimental to the atmosphere because they release free halogen radicals that catalyze the decomposition of ozone. Put in simpler terms, the presence of CFCs in the stratosphere has contributed significantly to the thin patches of  ozone layer  (the so-called "ozone hole").
