PVC4Pipes at Vinyl Sustainability Forum 2015

PVC4Pipes will be present at the forthcoming 3rd Vinyl Sustainability Forum on 30th April 2015 at the Majestic Barrière Hotel in Cannes, France.

Attendees are promised an intense one-day event with presentation and one-on-one discussions between stake holders from academia, government bodies, the UN, theEuropean Commission, retailers and all sectors of the PVC industry.

The forum will show how the industry is helping combat climate change at a number of levels, internally, "measures to improve energy and ressource efficiency" and externally, how "PVC products can contribute in reducing CO2 emissions".

There will be a number of keynote speeches.  The UN will explain its sustainability agenda for 2015, the European Commission (DG Growth) will present the approach to issues of innovation, waste and the circular economy, being taken by the new Commission, and implications for EU climate policy.  VinylPlus will offer a progress report on developments and achievements.

Zoran Davidovski, Communications Chairman of PVC4Pipes and VP Marketing & Innovation at Pipelife International, will present a paper about "The Contribution PVC Pipes Have on CO2 Emissions and Preventing Climate Change".
