October 19, 2021 /CSRwire/ - The Vinyl Sustainability Council (VSC), which is advancing sustainability in the vinyl industry, released today Collaborating for Better: 2020 Progress Report, a transparent 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,” said 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.”

Collaborating for Better: 2020 Progress Report documents updates to the +Vantage Vinyl program, advancements in the three impact categories, and our global collaboration efforts.

 Finally, the progress report spotlights the sustainability stories of 10 member companies that are demonstrating leadership in the industry by verifying to +Vantage Vinyl.

Vinyl Sustainability Council

The Vinyl Sustainability Council (VSC) is a voluntary membership organization that is taking a leadership role in uniting the industry to advance sustainable performance throughout the vinyl value chain.

The VSC created +Vantage Viny® as a voluntary initiative to advance the U.S. vinyl industry’s contribution to sustainable development. It aims to drive continuous improvement across all three sectors of sustainability – environmental, social and economic performance.

Individual company commitments are aligned with voluntary industry sustainability targets that were developed as a result of a materiality assessment. This analysis identified three impact categories, resource efficiency, health & safety and emissions that were aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

An independent verification process provides assurance of achievement of company commitments. Verified companies are awarded the right to use the +Vantage Vinyl trademark as evidence of their commitment to advancing sustainability in the vinyl industry.
