SAVA AGM 15 March 2016

ARE YOU READY FOR IT?????? PLEASE RSVP TO ENSURE A FRONT ROW SEAT! VISION2020 – THE BIG REVEAL! Since its inception in October 2010, the past year has probably been the most challenging thus far, not only for SAVA, but also for its members due to a variety of factors including lower than expected economic growth, investor confidence challenges and the depreciation of the South African currency. There were also concerns raised regarding possible anti-competitive behavior related to our PSP. Competition is necessary to achieve economic efficiency and is one of the essential conditions of a market economy. SAVA is committed to the preservation of vigorous, healthy and fair competition and to complying with relevant competition legislation. Thus nearing the end of our first five years and based on the current economic and political environment we realised that we need a “step-change” to ensure that we honor our commitment to our members and the wider PVC industry. We invite you to embrace this challenge with us and learn more about our VISION2020 that will most certainly build on the current momentum and provide an even greater future value to the industry by addressing the following aspects: • How can we be more inclusive and ensure benefit to the ENTIRE PVC value chain? • How can we bridge the gap between government and industry? • How can we ensure FULL compliance with the Competition Act? • How can we promote better market penetration for the local PVC industry? • How can we really ensure an industry that will be sustainable in the future? VISION2020 – THE BIG REVEAL – RSVP NOW!

PVC Recycling Survey Report

Results of an in-depth survey conducted by SAVA and focusing on the recycling of PVC in South Africa is now available. The results of this survey will also form the baseline for an Industry Waste Management Plan (IndWMP) should one be required by the Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA). This survey also provides a picture of the flow of PVC products in South Africa, the state of the PVC recycling industry and recyclate markets. It is envisaged that the survey will be used as a knowledge tool to assist with forward planning. It supports SAVA’s Product Stewardship Programme (PSP) commitments and could assist in setting targets for end-of-life solutions.

UPCYCLED PVC PRODUCTS ENJOY THE SPOTLIGHT AT ANNUAL RECYCLING AWARDS

Products made from PVC (Polyvinyl chloride) could be hard to recycle. Although South Africa saw a 3.9 % increase in the total amount of PVC diverted from landfill in 2014 (18 488 tons), vinyl is still often, and wrongly, regarded as being not-recyclable. However, SAPRO’s Recycled Product of the Year Awards which took place in Stellenbosch recently, proved that there is a growing market for recycled vinyl products.
