  • Our Business

    In 2014, our business performed well and we strengthened our leading position within the global coatings industry. Our employees from around the world made these results possible by delivering high-quality, innovative and sustainable solutions that customers trust to protect and beautify their products and surroundings. Listen to PPG Chairman and CEO, Charles Bunch, discuss the company’s business performance in 2014.

  • Our Products

    In 2014, 27 percent of PPG product sales came from coatings and materials that addressed our customers’ most pressing challenges, such as reduced energy consumption. PPG is integral in helping our customers create more sustainable products - from products that contribute to lighter, more fuel-efficient vehicles to paint systems that assist our customers in conserving water. Listen to PPG Chief Technology Officer and Vice President, Coatings Research and Development, Charles Kahle, discuss sustainable product innovation.

  • Our Communities

    We aim to create brighter and more colorful communities where PPG has a presence around the world. We invest in education opportunities to grow today’s skilled workforce in industries related to coatings and materials, and to develop tomorrow’s generation of innovators. We help to revitalize essential community resources. And we empower our employees to make an impact on the causes that are most important to them. See how employees in Brno, Czech Republic brought renewal to their community, through the power of color.

  • Our Safety

    Our commitment to employees begins with focused dedication to safety. That’s why, in 2014, PPG developed Safety 365, a safety awareness and communications initiative that empowers employees to be safe and speak up if they see something that may be hazardous. The program heightens awareness and attention among employees to PPG’s ongoing commitment to fostering and maintaining a culture of safety at home and at work. Learn more about this important safety education initiative.

  • Our Workplace

    Clean, safe and healthy environments are important for our employees. The company’s ERGO CUP® program aims to address safety issues and challenges faced by employees around the globe by recognizing significant workplace improvements that address ergonomic issues. Learn how the team at PPG's automotive coatings manufacturing facility in Cleveland, Ohio, earned the overall 2014 Ergo Cup Award.
