2015 Sustainability Report

Diversity and Inclusion

One of PPG’s greatest strengths is the diversity of our people, who represent wide-ranging nationalities, cultures, languages, religions, ethnicities, lifestyles and professional and educational backgrounds. Their unique perspectives enable us to meet challenges quickly, creatively and effectively, providing a significant competitive advantage in today’s global economy.
 
To ensure our people feel valued and respected, we are committed to providing a workplace that embraces a culture of diversity and inclusion. Our business and functional leaders set goals related to diversity and monitor progress on a regular basis.
 
Our Diversity & Inclusion Leadership Council (DILC), which comprises senior leaders within our company, champions, directs and facilitates initiatives that embed diversity and inclusion into our culture. The DILC is supported in its efforts by the following diversity councils:
  • Minority Leadership Council, including six regional chapters in the United States;
  • Women’s Leadership Council, including nine regional chapters in Asia Pacific, Australia, Europe/Middle East/Africa, Latin America and the United States;
  • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Council, which includes PPG Allies;
  • R&D Diversity Council; and
  • Generational Diversity Council.
During the year, we also completed the global rollout of our online Diversity & Inclusion training module that we launched in the United States in November 2014. More than 12,700 employees had completed the training by the end of 2015, with implementation continuing in 2016.

Supplier Diversity

We believe that our company and communities benefit when we provide equal opportunities for diverse suppliers to compete for our business. As such, we actively seek small businesses and businesses owned by veterans, minorities and women that provide quality products and services at competitive prices.
