newly elected President ESWA
ESWA's mission is to represent and promote the interests of the plastics flat roofing industry. We are the voice vis-à-vis the European institutions. We want to promote innovative and safer solutions from manufacture to application whilst providing optimum economic and environmental benefits to our customers. Every company within the ESWA association stands for quality. A Technical Committee supported by all members provides guidance and participates in the European and National Standardisation Boards that may influence our high standards. It also manages specific tasks such as Environmental Product Declarations and Fire Issues. The waterproofing systems of the Members are able to withstand the highest stresses in building constructions.
ESWA is partner of VinylPlus sustainable development programme of the PVC industry which brings together the total PVC value chain. VinylPlus is the even more ambitious continuation of the successful Vinyl 2010 Voluntary Commitment of the Industry. In addition to a Quantum Leap in recycled volumes the programme is based on 5 sustainability pillars such as the safe use of additives and emission reductions. With our ROOFCOLLECT® recycling system we subscribe to the VinylPlus targets, help to finance recycling operations and to achieve the ambitious targets of the Voluntary Commitment of our industry.
