"In the race for sustainability the laggards will lose. We see the VinylPlus® initiative as the forerunners and the role model for a global standard of the industry."

Christophe Yvetot

UNIDO Representative to the European Union

VSF 2015 - Cannes, 30 April 2015



Synergies between converters and the rest of the industry are key for the future of the PVC sector in Europe. The Vinyl Foundation has been set up to manage the funding that will enable VinylPlus® to realise its full potential and to provide a more equitable system that recognises the complexity of PVC manufacturing.

Independence and accountability

The Vinyl Foundation is a non-profit making trust in charge of collecting funds from European PVC converters who want to be a part of VinylPlus®. All information is handled in the strictest confidence. 

This independent funding mechanism, established and managed by the converting industry, is good for the PVC industry and strengthens the converters' position as a key stakeholder in VinylPlus.
