The role of ECVM

In common with the rest of the chemical industry, ECVM is working hard to reduce any effects on the environment caused by the activities of the PVC industry through the 'Responsible Care' policy of the whole chemical sector.

It works actively with its members and sister trade associations representing additive manufacturers, machinery manufacturers and plastic product producers, to ensure the highest production standards are observed and that the whole industry is working to ensure the sustainable development of PVC as a material.

In recent years ECVM members have made substantial investments to maintain or achieve the challenging emission standards set out for VCM and PVC production in the ECVM Industry Charters and ECVM is a key player in Vinyl 2010 – the Voluntary Commitment of the European PVC Industry
