Vinyl Sustainability Council Report Details Industry Progress on Sustainability

The Vinyl Sustainability Council released Collaborating for Better: 2020 Progress Report, a view into the growth of the VSC's industry sustainability initiative, +Vantage Vinyl.

+Vantage Vinyl is a voluntary effort by member companies to contribute to and verify their commitment to the vinyl industry's sustainability initiative. The program's aim is to encourage performance improvements throughout the supply chain and to verify sustainable operations along the product's entire value chain. The program recently completed its pilot phase and moved into an operational program. The report details the work that was completed to grow the program.

"Collaborating for Better: 2020 Progress Report documents the tremendous work that has been done by VSC members over the last year," says Jay Thomas, VSC executive director. "The progress we've seen is the result of continued collaboration, which is what influenced the title of this year's report. Our collaborative efforts don't stop within our own membership though. We've also sought out partnerships with a variety of groups domestically and globally."

The report documents updates to the +Vantage Vinyl program, advancements in the three impact categories, and VSC's global collaboration efforts, as well as spotlighting the sustainability stories of 10 member companies that are demonstrating leadership in the industry by verifying to +Vantage Vinyl.
