As the voice of the German PVC industry, AGPU and its 60 or so member companies along the entire PVC value chain have been working to establish transparency for the general public for over 25 years. We stand for reliable information in dialogue with decision-makers from the worlds of politics, business, trade and commerce, as well as from NGOs in Germany. Ever since it was first founded in 1988, AGPU has continuously strengthened its profile in order to meet current and future challenges.

AGPU is committed to the future-oriented material PVC!

Industry Network

Active involvement in the European PVC network is just one of the targets on the agenda set by AGPU for its commitment to future-oriented PVC material.The “PVC and the Environment” workshop, which is hosted twice a year by AGPU in cooperation with PlasticsEurope Germany in Bonn and Frankfurt am Main, has had for many years the reputation as a well-known and recognised expert forum, and the AGPU General Meeting with its round-table event for decision-makers in the PVC industry constantly offers participants excellent networking opportunities.

Vast Pool Of Expertise

AGPU brings together the knowledge of a large number of experts and promotes the exchange of their expertise and experience. It keeps in step with the times by constantly collecting, processing and summarising up-to-date information. AGPU also functions as a radar for the PVC industry by continuously observing both the media and legislation.

Open Dialogue

AGPU works as a reliable partner to conduct an open dialogue with decision-makers from the fields of business, politics and media and with NGOs. AGPU uses targetgroup-oriented communication and convincing factual arguments to establish transparency and trust with its contacts. Its communication activities with selected target groups are conducted both on an internal level within the industry and in exchanges with external stakeholders.
