Shin-Etsu has signed the Operation Clean Sweep pledge. With this we demonstrate our commitment to minimize the emission of PVC powder to the environment.
Operation Clean Sweep (OCS) is a sustainability program and one of the initiatives to stop the pollution of the world's oceans. Part of the plastic pollution comes from pellets and powder in the waterways and ultimately in our seas. While consumers are responsible for the proper disposal of the products they use, the plastics industry must focus on proper containment of the products they use and prevent the products from getting into the environment.
