Vinyl Sustainability Council Highlights +Vantage Vinyl Program
Washington, DC, September 1, 2022-The Vinyl Sustainability Council (VSC), a self-funded business council advancing sustainability in the vinyl industry, is raising the awareness of the council’s +Vantage Vinyl-verified companies by launching a collaboration with Ecomedes.
An online database for construction professionals seeking sustainable building materials, Ecomedes seeks to optimize product procurement for architects, engineers, and contractors who must achieve certain sustainability benchmarks in their construction projects. Thanks to the new collaboration, companies that have achieved +Vantage Vinyl verification via the VSC are now listed on Ecomedes.
Companies that Earn the Mark through VSC’s +Vantage Vinyl initiative must demonstrate their contribution to industry progress and continuous improvement in sustainability across all three sectors: social, economic, and environmental. Verification through GreenCircle Certified authenticates and reports on the activities and key performance indicators achieved by each company within the five sustainability pillars: environmental stewardship, social diligence, economic soundness, collaboration, and open communications.
Thus far in 2022, 17 companies have achieved +Vantage Vinyl verification and are included in the Ecomedes database.
