VYNOVA has signed the Operation Clean Sweep® pledge and is committed to the clear goal of zero emissions of plastic pellets, flakes and powder to the environment.  Operation Clean Sweep® (OCS) is a key sustainability program of the global plastics industry and one of a framework of global initiatives focused on the elimination of marine litter.  Some of the plastic litter comes from pellets and powder entering open waterways and ultimately into our seas.

While consumers are responsible for the proper disposal of the plastic products they use, the plastics industry must focus on the proper containment of the products it manages, namely plastic pellets, flakes and powder.

Across all our operations VYNOVA will implement the five key steps of the OCS program:

·         Commit to the zero emission of pellets, flakes and powder
·         Continually assess and audit all our operations to ensure maximum containment
·         Upgrade our facilities to meet defined containment targets
·         Establish a continuous improvement program
·         Increase employee awareness and provide training to all its employees

As a major European PVC producer, VYNOVA is a leading advocate of sustainable development of the Vinyls value chain through VinylPlus, the voluntary sustainable development program of the European PVC industry. Protection of the environment is one of the core values of the company.
