The fifth edition of the VinylPlus Sustainability Forum will take place on the 10th and 11th May 2017 in Berlin. VinylPlus, a customer and partner of The Natural Step since many years, is the voluntary sustainable development programme of the European PVC industry. It aims at creating a long-term sustainability framework for the entire PVC value chain.

This year’s forum will revolve around “Towards Circular Economy”. It will look at the key sustainability challenges for PVC and the growing opportunities to contribute to enhanced resource efficiency. Keynote addresses of high-level speakers, among them Professor Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker, Co-President of the Club of Rome, will provide impulses for sustainable development, innovation and value-driven growth within the limits of our planet.

The Natural Step will participate at the event with an info-stand in the exhibition area. Richard Blume and Martin Malmros from Det Naturliga Steget, The Natural Step’s Swedish organisation and Dirk Uhlemann, Managing Director & Advisor at The Natural Step Germany, are looking forward to an inspiring exchange of ideas with the PVC industry experts.
