A world where rapidly rising population, resource depletion and pollution challenge efforts to sustainably meet human needs. Core challenges include meeting human fresh water and food needs, especially in context of a changing climate. Also healthcare, housing and related infrastructure. Can a hierarchy of needs be identified? If so, how could this help set government and industry policy priorities in the period to 2030? 2050? What might a shared social vision be? How might it be achieved? What are the current enablers/disincentives and how can these be better aligned/made consistent with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)? What is required of regulators, industry, investors and civil society?
At the VinylPlus Sustainability Forum 2018, in Madrid, Spain, we will share visions of the potential of PVC to deliver on sustainable prosperity. Highlighting examples of key sectors/products/services, we will develop a compelling narrative of how PVC must be part of the sustainability/circular economy/material efficiency story. Special emphasis in this context will be given to consumer goods.
We will address the adequacy of the current policy framework (EU, global, local) for enabling PVC to play its full potential role in achieving the SDGs.
We will demonstrate how wonderfully PVC meets societal needs. We're waiting to see you in Madrid!
