PVC4Cables is the ECVM's platform dedicated to the PVC cables value chain. It brings together the producers of PVC resins, stabilisers and plasticisers. It is open for participation by PVC compounders and PVC cables producers.
PVC4Cables intends to act as a driver for environmentally responsible innovations in the PVC cables sector and as a focal point for dialogue and communications with all stakeholders: compounds and cable producers, regulators, specifiers, installers, electricians, media and the general public.
Objective of the initiative is to proactively engage in the promotion of PVC cables, highlighting their contribution to sustainable development and to the circular economy, as well as their numerous technical and functional benefits for final users and consumers.
