Sika Sarnafil is proud to be an active member of the Vinyl Sustainability Council and +Vantage Vinyl verified company. The Vinyl Sustainability Council created +Vantage Vinyl™ 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.
Participation is open to any company in the vinyl value chain that operates in the United States and is a resin supplier, raw material/additive supplier, material compounder, converter/formulator, end-product manufacturer, equipment manufacturer, recycler, or distributor/transporter.
Individual company commitments are aligned with voluntary industry sustainability targets that were developed as a result of a materiality analysis. This analysis identified three impact categories, landfill diversion, 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.
+Vantage Vinyl recognizes that purpose-driven sustainability requires long-term commitment to balance environmental stewardship with economic support and social responsibility. Working together with a common vision to do more with less, the vinyl industry is positioned to address the needs of people for a sustainable future.
