According to a report published in the local „Lippische Landes-Zeitung“ newspaper on 11th May 2015, the main committee of the German town of Detmold has decided to allow the use of PVC windows in public buildings again and in doing so, has repealed the resolution made to avoid PVC in 1995. The new decision was supported by votes from the German Christian Democratic Union (CDU), German Social Democratic Party (SPD) and Alliance ’90/The Greens. The report states that it was based on the high cost- and energy-saving potential of PVC windows. The CDU representative additionally argues that nowadays, PVC windows are often made of recycled and therefore environmentally friendly material. The town council has also already approved the annulment of the previous resolution.
