In line with increasing community awareness of environmental issues, Australian Plastic Profiles (APP) recognizes the importance of environmental sustainability and is dedicated to continually improving our manufacturing and procurement processes.
The company is an active member of the Vinyl Council's PVC Product Stewardship Program; a program tasked with setting realistic timeframes for the delivery of key undertakings in production and storage , the safe use of additives, waste management, research and public reporting. In 2016 APP received an Excellence Award from the Stewardship Program. For more information on this program click on the below link.
Recycling of scrapped PVC material is a key plank of our goal to reduce the overall amount of waste generated from our products. Virtually all PVC scrapped during the manufacturing process can be re-used.
APP is also committed to partnerships with our customers and external providers whereby excess or damaged PVC pipe and fittings is recovered from building sites and returned for re-processing. APP has recylced over 200 tonne of PVC that has been recovered from these building sites.
