Abstract : In 2000 the PVC chain embarked in a ten year program to improve the environmental footprint of the PVC industry : Vinyl 2010. Challenging targets have been fixed and all of them have been achieved : recycling, substitution of heavy metals, energy saving etc. The pipe industry and specially the members of TEPPFA have plaid a key role in this great achievement. That’s why the industry has decided to continue this successful story with a new voluntary commitment : Vinyl Plus in which TEPPFA members will play again an essential role. This new commitment has been signed on June 2011 on behalf of TEPPFA members by TEPPFA Chairman with very ambitious targets for 2020.
