Progress Report 2005

01 May 2005

Vinyl 2010 shows the commitment of the PVC industry to present and future generations and aims at ensuring high levels of economic dynamism, environmental protection and social welfare as part of Sustainable Development.

In practical terms Vinyl 2010 is the legal entity that provides the organisational structure and financial resources to implement the European PVC industry’s Voluntary Commitment. This Commitment includes specific targets and initiatives on emission monitoring during PVC production, the usage of additives and, at end of life, waste management. It operates through projects covering technology, research, collection and recycling of post-consumer waste and communication to all stakeholders.

To our knowledge, it is the only Voluntary Commitment involving the entire upstream and downstream chain of a given material – from raw-material production to post-consumer waste – in a single industry in Europe or elsewhere.
