Vinylplus Certification For Profine

The two members of the Profine  Management Board

As part of its sustainability strategy, Profine GmbH has been awarded the VinylPlus Product Label, following a certification process.

The VinylPlus Product Label indicates to end customers, manufacturers and markets that PVC building products are high performance and sustainable. The Profine companies in the the window and door sector can use the label to advertise, kömmerling profile systems and sheets for example, in tenders and to promote their green credentials to consumers.

The sustainability label was developed by VinylPlus, the European PVC industry's voluntary commitment to sustainable development, in close cooperation with the Building Research Establishment (BRE) and The Natural Step (TNS).



As is usual with certification procedures, a system provider must prove in independently conducted audits that certain key requirements are met. The criteria include, among other things, the responsible procurement of PVC raw materials and additives, closed material cycles and recycling, a sustainable energy and climate strategy, and process management requirements. In essence, it must be ensured that PVC as a raw material is sustainably sourced, processed and recycled.

Profine  GmbH is authorised to use the VinylPlus Product Label in the European and UK sales regions, in relation to profiles and sheets. The label refers to the Profine  production sites in Berlin and Pirmasens.

As an official VinylPlus partner, Profine  GmbH supports the sustainable development of the European PVC industry. The company is also a member of key associations and initiatives such as EPPA and the German Rewindo recycling network.


 “We have set ourselves the goal of aligning our entire company to a future worth living in and we understand sustainability to be a holistic task - from using high-quality raw materials, the production of energy-efficient systems and extensive recycling up to the implementation of our corporate social responsibility. The partnership with VinylPlus and the VinylPlus Product Label fully underline this philosophy.”

– Dr. Peter Mrosik 

CEO, Profine  Group
