Industry Network AGPU

AGPU counts among its members around 60 partners along the entire PVC value chain and represents the interests of the German PVC industry. One focus is the intensive dialogue with decision-makers from politics, business, trade and NGOs in Germany, which the AGPU has now been conducting successfully for three decades with the active support of its members.

The promotion of the sustainable development of PVC products has always been at the heart of the AGPU, founded in 1988. Through the partnership with the Euro- pean sustainability programme VinylPlus®, the goals of the European PVC industry will also be made better known in Germany. Active participation in the European PVC network and the creation of added value for the member companies with a clearly defined value promise are among the objectives with which AGPU is committed to the future-oriented material PVC.

AGPU regularly offers its members networking platforms. For example, the “PVC and Environment” workshop, organised twice a year in cooperation with PlasticsEurope Germany in Bonn and Frankfurt/Main, achieved a record number of visitors in January 2018 with 90 participants. In addition, the general meeting with the Round Table of decision-makers from the PVC industry is an important forum for personal dialogue.

Partner in Germany

AGPU and member companies not only benefit from active involvement in the European PVC network, but also from strong cooperation partners in Germany. In recent years, AGPU has not only worked in close cooperation with PlasticsEurope Deutschland but has also worked together with other industry associations to initiate a multitude of projects. Two particularly successful examples of such cooperation are the PROWINDO Alliance for Plastic Windows and the ‘Best Practice for the Environment’ initiative focusing on the topic of resource efficiency and sustainability. A project set in cooperation with Rewindo.

AGPU has also been successfully working in cooperation with other industry associations on an international level for several years. As members of the European PVC network, the experts from the city of Bonn are popular contacts and project partners. AGPU regularly implements communication projects in Germany in cooperation with VinylPlus, which is the voluntary sustainable development programme of the European PVC industry. All parties involved in these projects benefit from the constructive exchange of ideas and expertise and from the experience and competence of their respective partners.
