Sustainability Approach PPG's culture of continuous improvement in every aspect of our business underpins our approach to sustainability. Whether it’s increasing the efficiency of our operations or developing our people, our improvement efforts naturally extend to many areas that impact our sustainability performance. We have a formal structure to ensure continuous improvement in the sustainability of our global operations. Our sustainability vision and values provide the foundation for all of our sustainability efforts. Our Sustainability Committee, which was approved by the PPG Board of Directors, establishes policies, programs, procedures, and goals to address sustainability in our business practices. Most of the committee’s nine members are officer-level employees, providing leadership support and visibility. Driving our performance are measurable sustainability goals that address our biggest challenges and opportunities. We hold our locations and businesses accountable for achieving these goals, and we are transparent in our progress against each on a global level. In early 2016, the Sustainability Committee revised our sustainability vision, values and goals to better align with our updated corporate vision and values and also represent the sustainability challenges and opportunities now facing our business following a series of divestitures and acquisitions over the past few years. The realignment also included changing the Sustainability Committee’s standing subcommittees to the following: Resource Management; Natural Resources and Climate Change; Product Innovation and Marketing; Sustainability Communications and Advocacy; Wellness; Purchasing; and Manufacturing. These subcommittees provide a deeper focus on key aspects of our sustainability efforts.
