We are committed to transparent reporting on our ESG performance
PPG's annual ESG Report underscores our commitment to transparent reporting on our sustainability and environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance.
This report has been prepared in accordance with the newly updated Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards, which continue to guide the evolution of our reporting on ESG performance. We also provide disclosures under the Accounting Standards Board's (SASB) guidelines for the Chemical Industry. This year we also published our first index referencing the Task Force on Climate-Related Disclosures (TCFD) framework, further illustrating our commitment to understanding and managing climate-related risks and opportunities.
We have attempted to be as inclusive as possible. Unless otherwise noted, the information and data contained in this report cover all employees, PPG locations and joint ventures where we maintain at least 50% ownership.
In 2021, we once again engaged Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance (LRQA) to provide limited assurance on our Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas data. We will continue to explore assurance options for other aspects of our report, but we are confident our internal processes provide sufficient oversight regarding the accuracy of the information we present.
This report, inclusive of the 2021 reporting year, includes forward-looking statements about our business plans, initiatives and objectives, which may change based on subsequent developments. We encourage you to provide feedback on this report and our sustainability performance via email, a short online survey or a letter sent to PPG, One PPG Place, Pittsburgh, PA 15272, Attention: Corporate Communications.
