This VinylPlus Sustainability Forum held on May 16th and 17th took the theme of ‘Meeting Societal Needs’ and explored how the vinyl sector and its products can help to meet the wide-ranging challenges of providing essential services for a growing global population in areas such as healthcare, housing and related infrastructure.
The forum attracted more than 140 stakeholders from 30 countries representing the European Commission, European Parliament, the United Nations, consumer organisations, academia, specifiers, designers, architects, recyclers and the PVC value chain.
With plastics firmly in the spotlight, inspiring presentations and panel discussions from top-level speakers focussed on key topics, including policy frameworks and drivers that will guide businesses towards sustainable practices and alignment with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
VinylPlus is the Voluntary Commitment of the European PVC industry. The programme establishes a long-term framework for the sustainable development of the PVC industry by tackling a number of critical challenges in the EU-28, Norway and Switzerland.
