PVCConstruct is a cultural project without any commercial interest. It was born to illustrate the many ways in which Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) can enhance our daily lives.
The European Vinyl Industries launched the third edition of their eagerly awaited Vinyl Sustainability Forum, with the theme “More Vinyl, Less Carbon”, on the 30th of April at the Majestic Barriere Hotel in Cannes, France.

Attendees had an intense one-day event with presentations and one-on-one discussions between stakeholders from academia, government bodies, the UN, the European Commission, retailers and all sectors of the PVC industry. The event was moderated once again by Paul Hohnen, an international expert on sustainable development and former strategy director of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).
The forum showed how the industry is helping combat climate change at a number of levels. Internally, such as through measures to improve energy and resource efficiency and externally, by showing how PVC products contribute to reducing end users CO2 emissions. The forum provided opportunities for members to share their experiences and learn new approaches to addressing the challenges of climate change.
