The release of Corporate Knights’ annual CLEAN200 global listis all about highlighting publicly traded companies that are leading the way with solutions for the transition to a clean energy future. Not only was PPG named to the illustrious list, it was actually recognised as the top-ranking manufacturer of paints, coatings and specialty materials, with the greatest percent of 2020 revenue from sustainably advantaged products. The Clean200 list was compiled after evaluating 8,480 global firms based on an assessment of the amount of revenue each company earns from products and services.
“According to Corporate Knights, Clean200 companies are putting sustainability at the heart of their products, services, business models and investments, helping move the world onto a more sustainable trajectory,” said Diane Kappas, PPG Vice President, Global Sustainability. “We are committed to achieving our sustainability goals and enabling our customers to reach their sustainability ambitions through products and processes that reduce emissions, water and energy use, offer wellness benefits, and increase the useful lifetime of their most valuable assets.” In 2020, PPG reported 35% of sales from sustainably advantaged products and has the goal of achieving 40% of sales from sustainably advantaged products by 2025.
