Some of PPG’s new sustainability goals include:
- Reducing energy intensity and greenhouse gas emission intensity 1.5 percent each per year;
- Reducing spills and releases 10 percent per year;
- Implementing employee wellness programs at 100 percent of PPG facilities globally; and
- Achieving 30 percent of sales from sustainable products by 2020.
“As we strive to continue being the world’s leading coatings and specialty products company, sustainability remains a fundamental part of everything we do at PPG,” Kappas said. “Our third full corporate sustainability report reflects our performance and commitment to sustainable business practices.”
The report is self-declared to meet Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G3 Application Level B requirements. PPG is scheduled to publish its next sustainability report in 2014, which will report on performance in 2013.
