VinylPlus® – committed to sustainable development
is the European PVC industry's sustainable development programme. The programme ensures that PVC pipes and other PVC products are collected and recycled. Almost 600,000 tonnes of PVC waste are recycled through VinylPlus® each year. VinylPlus® was developed through open dialogue with stakeholders, including industry, NGOs, regulators, civil society representatives and PVC users. Five key challenges have been identified for PVC on the basis of The Natural Step System Conditions for a Sustainable Society
. The regional scope of the programme is the EU-28 plus Norway and Switzerland.
