VinylPlus® is the European PVC industry’s Voluntary Commitment to Sustainable Development. Designed to establish a long-term sustainability framework for the entire PVC value chain, VinylPlus® is positioning itself as a frontrunner for sustainable development.

Approximately 200 companies across the PVC value chain are united in support of VinylPlus®, as well as over 150 recycling partners. INEOS Inovyn is the main provider of both financial and management support to the VinylPlus® programme.

The programme has been developed in an open process of stakeholder dialogue including private companies, NGOs, regulators, civil society representatives, and PVC users. It extends to the EU-28 plus Norway and Switzerland.
