PPG again earns EcoVadis gold rating for sustainability practices, ranking among top 7% of evaluated companies

29 April 2024

PPG has again earned a gold rating in corporate social responsibility from EcoVadis, a leading third-party sustainability ratings platform. PPG ranked higher than 93% of the 130,000 evaluated companies.

According to the EcoVadis rating methodology, PPG earned “advanced” scores in the categories of environment, labour and human rights, and sustainable procurement practices. Contributing to PPG’s rating, in 2023:

  • 44% of PPG’s sales were from sustainably advantaged products
  • The company reduced its scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 10%
  • 97% of PPG’s key suppliers were assessed against stringent sustainability and social responsibility criteria

EcoVadis experts evaluate companies based on 21 factors grouped into four categories: environment, labour and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement. Each company is assessed in these areas based on size, location and industry. The rating methodology is based on international sustainability standards and initiatives, such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, United Nations Global Compact and ISO 26000 standard (social responsibility).

It is a testament to the efforts of our more than 50,000 employees and reflects our recent progress.”
