The sustainable growth of society as a whole is only possible through the balancing of economic, social and environmental sustainability. In this context, innovation is key. As countless new technologies have developed in the past decades, new methods and tools are Accelerating Innovation throughout all industries, encouraging sustainable development.
The PVC industry’s journey towards sustainable development already began nearly 20 years ago. Today, as innovative technologies continue to develop, we ask ourselves: how is innovation supporting the PVC industry's targets in the context of the circular economy? What challenges and opportunities are today's innovative technologies providing the PVC industry? How are they Accelerating Innovation towards sustainable development throughout the industry?
A number of industry and market experts, as well as distinguished speakers from the European Commission and Parliament, the United Nations, NGOs and academia, to name but a few, will discuss the following topics:
- Industry and environmental sustainability in the Czech Republic
- PVC markets in the EU and globally
- The competitiveness of PVC products over their whole life cycle
- The right market balance for the use of virgin and recycled PVC

- Key drivers of innovation relating to sustainability in the plastics industry
- The development of efficient technologies and digital solutions that we can trust and use correctly
- The evolution of society and educational needs
