Industry Network

VinylPlus Deutschland is the voice of the PVC industry in Germany and represents the entire value chain with its over 50 member companies – from raw material production to processing and recycling. VinylPlus Germany offers its members access to an established and wide-ranging industry network, regular expert meetings, workshops and an annual general meeting with the VinylPlus® Sustainability Forum Germany.

Vast Pool Of Expertise

VinylPlus Deutschland pools the knowledge of many experts and promotes its exchange. In addition, VinylPlus Deutschland – also together with partner associations – regularly publishes current studies and data on PVC in Germany, continuously evaluates media and legislative processes on relevant PVC topics and makes the results exclusively available to members in the weekly PVC-Ticker in German and English.

Open Dialogue

VinylPlus Deutschland communicates the goals and successes of the European VinylPlus® sustainability programme. In addition, VinylPlus Deutschland maintains an intensive dialogue with decision-makers and opinion leaders, creates transparency and thus builds trust in the sustainable development of the material. This includes regularly sending newsletters to relevant target groups, producing brochures and specific information materials, and writing statements and letters to the editor to the media, politicians and authorities, even when PVC as a material comes under unjustified criticism.


We offer our members access to decision-makers in politics, industry, authorities, the construction industry, to journalists and important opinion leaders. The close cooperation with VinylPlus® offers a view beyond Germany, opens up the European perspective and ensures a uniform sender of our messages. In cooperation with other associations in the plastics industry, we regularly produce up-to-date studies and data surveys on PVC in Germany. Press releases flank events and important events for the industry.
