About Us

Environment, Health & Safety

At PPG, our pursuit of business success goes hand-in-hand with benefits to society and the environment. For more than 130 years, PPG Industries has grown and thrived by making sound business decisions. With the intent of ensuring the company’s long-term viability and success, these decisions have been made with the best interests of people, profitability and the planet in mind.
The wellbeing of staff, as well as the long term sustainability of the company’s operations, have long been an underlying principle at PPG. We define sustainability broadly to encompass environmental, social and economic performance measures. At PPG, the concept of sustainability includes:
  • Providing employees with a safe, healthy and fulfilling workplace
  • Partnering with employees and their families to improve their health and well-being
  • Delivering a superior return on investment for shareholders
  • Minimising the impact of the company’s operations on the environment
  • Furnishing goods and services that meet the needs of customers and society
  • Being a good corporate citizen in each nation and community in which the company operates
PPG recognises its responsibility to preserve and protect the global environment in which the company operates. The business is run using robust environmental, health and safety practices while providing product solutions that reduce energy consumption and minimise environmental impact. Of nearly $15 billion in annual sales, over 30% is attributed to ‘green’ products. We see it as our responsibility to help customers to go ‘green’ by enhancing their production processes and reducing their environmental foot-print.
