The Ongoing Progress of VinylPlus
VinylPlus, the sustainable development programme of the European PVC industry, issued in October 2015 a brand new brochure: “On the Road to Sustainability: the Ongoing Progress of VinylPlus”.
The brochure highlights how the European PVC value chain managed to take the journey from being severely criticised to become a role model for how industry can achieve sustainable change.
This new brochure tells the story of how the European PVC industry, through large investments and partnerships, transformed the material from being vilified to play an important role in the battle against climate change and establishing a circular economy. Because most PVC products are durable, fully recyclable, light-weight and have a low carbon footprint, PVC has been recognised as a material for the future. This remarkable journey of the material has only been possible because of the European PVC industry’s voluntary commitments Vinyl 2010 and VinylPlus.
