Membership builds on company’s commitment to sustainable-advantaged products

PITTSBURGH, May 1, 2018 – PPG (NYSE:PPG) today announced that it has joined the World Alliance for Efficient Solutions, furthering the company’s commitment to innovate products and processes that provide environmental and other sustainability benefits to its customers.
