The 2020 edition of the VinylPlus Sustainability Forum themed #CIRCULARVINYL will focus on the key sustainability challenges and transformation for the vinyl industry in the years to come, both in the European and global contexts. The event will gather representatives from the EU institutions, the United Nations, NGOs, politicians, academia and the entire PVC industry value chain, in Florence, Italy, on May 6th and 7th 2020.
Organised by VinylPlus®, the Voluntary Commitment to sustainable development of the European PVC industry, the 2020 Forum will explore how to turn PVC sustainability progress into business opportunities for the entire PVC industry towards 2030 and beyond. It will also examine PVC’s role in sustainable construction for redesigning tomorrow’s urban environment with ‘green’ certified products.
Brigitte Dero, Managing Director, VinylPlus, says: “As we approach the culmination of our 10-year voluntary commitment to sustainable development, the PVC industry is on track to achieve VinylPlus’ ambitious targets by the end of this year. But the hard work continues. The dynamic European policy landscape – covering the European Green Deal, Circular Economy, sustainable development, climate change, loss of biodiversity, and much more – makes our efforts even more relevant.”
