PVC Product StewardshipThe Australian PVC industry's Product Stewardship Program (PSP or 'the Program'), launched in 2002, is a voluntary initiative setting out a series of commitments to address environmental and health issues associated with the life cycle of polyvinyl chloride (PVC, or vinyl).
This is an ongoing, long-term undertaking of the Australian PVC industry to recognise and progressively address all pertinent environmental issues within responsible and deliverable timeframes. Signatories commit to a range of actions in areas including manufacturing emissions, additives and end-of-life management. These Commitments bind the Signatories to deliver specific outcomes.
The Program is dynamic. It can demonstrate many achievements which have improved the health and environmental impacts of vinyl products. Stakeholder feedback, Signatory reporting and expert scientific and technical research are just some of the ways the PSP achieves progress on its Commitments. For more detail see www.vinyl.org.au.
Armstrong World Industries (Australia) Pty Ltd ('Armstrong') are both supporters and signatories to the PVC Industry Product Stewardship Program, Australia as part of our commitment Armstrong offers a publically available Product Stewardship Program (PSP) which encompasses contractual arrangements with customers to take products back at the end of the product's in-use phase, as such Armstrong will provide appropriate arrangements to collect off cuts and end of life products for recycling into new flooring products or recycling by an external facility.
