About the Vinyl Foundation

The Vinyl Foundation is a funding mechanism run by EuPC to support VinylPlus®, the sustainable development programme of the European PVC industry.


It collects funds from PVC converters which are dedicated largely to finance VinylPlus'® recycling operations.The programme includes a significant commitment to systematic recycling.


To ensure that this initiative, which has been designed to benefit the whole industry, does not stumble because of financial constraints, it is vital to ensure that the costs are shared fairly across the whole PVC value chain.



771,313 tonnes of PVC recycled in 2019 – more than 96% of the programme’s 2020 target

New Record Amount of PVC Recycled in 2019


VinylPlus® is the new ten-year Voluntary Commitment of the European PVC industry towards sustainable development. Contributors to the Vinyl Foundation become accredited partners of VinylPlus®, entitled to a number of benefits.
