VinylPlus® Product Label

VinylPlusAs part of its sustainability strategy, profine GmbH has been awarded the “VinylPlus® Product Label” following a demanding certification process.

The "VinylPlus® Product Label" is the sustainability seal for PVC building products. Products that are characterized by high performance and sustainability are easily recognized by this certificate for end customers, manufacturers and markets. The partner companies from the window construction sector can use the label to advertise profine profile systems and sheets, for example in tenders.

profine GmbH is authorised to use the VinylPlus® Product Label in the European sales region as well as for various products and systems in the area of profiles and sheets. In this first step, the label refers to the profine production sites in Berlin and Pirmasens.

Zero Pellet Loss

We were the first company in the window industry to receive ‘Zero Pellet Loss’ certification. Initiated by the “pro-K” industry association , the ‘Zero Pellet Loss’ programme and ‘Operation Clean Sweep’ are part of the plastic industry’s global effort to keep plastic out of the ocean.

We have implemented numerous technical measures and process changes to minimise or prevent pellets from our production facilities getting into the waste water and thus the oceans.

We hope that our actions will encourage other processors and manufacturers to get involved in these and similar initiatives.
