Circular Economy

Taking the theme of ‘Towards Circular Economy’, the fifth VinylPlus Sustainability Forum will examine the key sustainability challenges for PVC when representatives from the entire industry value chain meet in Berlin, Germany on May 10 and 11 2017.

Key topics will include the contribution of the vinyl industry to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), global vinyl market, and industry initiatives.

Featuring case studies, success stories and panel talks, the comprehensive programme will also include discussions on eco-design, and innovation concepts, including a look at better lifestyles with smart PVC products.

Brigitte Dero, VinylPlus general manager, said: “Through the VinylPlus Voluntary Commitment, we are moving the European PVC industry towards a Circular Economy and have already demonstrated significant progress and achievements towards our sustainability goals. Once again, our annual event provides a valuable opportunity for participants to collaborate, share best practice and gain positively from collective input.”
