VinylPlus, the Voluntary Commitment of the European PVC industry, has published its new progress report. The programme establishes a long-term framework for the sustainable development of the PVC industry.
The PVC industry is well on track to meet VinylPlus’ recycling targets for 2020 and ever more challenging recycling targets for 2025, in line with the Circular Economy and the ambition of the Circular Plastics Alliance and EU policy initiatives to encourage recovering, recycling and reusing plastics.
VinylPlus goes further than the Circular Economy, addressing other sustainability topics such as energy and climate change, sustainable material sourcing and production and the responsible use of additives. Such key issues have been integrated into the VinylPlus® Product Label, the sustainability certification scheme for PVC products in the building and construction sector delivering the highest sustainability performance and contribution to the Circular Economy.
