PPG Annual Report and 10K 2019

A MESSAGE FROMOUR CHAIRMAN We are a company built upon achieving our goals. And none are more important than those pertaining to the safety of each and every PPG employee – 365 days a year. Our environment, health and safety (EHS) policy and standards define our expectations, and we continually strengthen programs and procedures to reduce health and safety risks in our operations. To ensure progress against our goal of zero injuries, we strive to achieve an improvement of at least 5% per year in our injury and illness rate. While we fell short of achieving our ultimate goal of zero injuries in 2019, this remains our top priority. We are taking actions across the company to improve our 2020 safety metrics. These actions aim to improve behaviors and ensure our individual safety and the safety of our colleagues. PPG’s culture of continuous improvement also underpins our approach and commitment to sustainable operations. Whether it is increasing the efficiency of our operations or developing our people, our improvement efforts naturally extend to many areas that affect our sustainability performance. In 2019, our employees continued to enhance our sustainable operations around the globe. During the year, we recognized 22 projects through our internal sustainability awards initiative. These projects helped us reduce our waste, water and emissions. Please visit sustainability.ppg.com to learn more about PPG’s 2025 sustainability goals and progress.
