Every year, VinylPlus finances a number communication projects run by sector-specific and national PVC associations.  Their main goal is to increase sustainability awareness as agreed on the Voluntary Commitment while at the same time the image of PVC as a material of choice can be improved. Externally, these projects respond to a number of social expectations by promoting a transparent dialogue with all stakeholders which, in turn, can help VinylPlus addressing key concerns. Internally, they contribute to creating a sustainable mindset and shared goals across the PVC value-chain.
