The European PVC value chain has just announced its next 10-year sustainability programme. The VinylPlus 2030 Commitment has been developed bottom-up through industry workshops and with an open process of stakeholder consultation.
Three ‘pathways’ and 12 ‘action areas’ have been identified embracing:
- The PVC value chain’s circularity;
- Advancements towards carbon neutrality, and minimisation of the environmental footprint of the PVC production and products;
- The engagement with stakeholders and global coalitions.
VinylPlus aims to contribute to the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, with a particular focus on sustainable consumption and production, climate change and partnerships.
