Believing that excellence in business and high ethical standards go hand in hand, PPG is committed to:
  • Furnishing goods and services that meet our customers' and society's needs;
  • Providing employees with a safe, healthy and fulfilling work environment;
  • Affording our shareholders a superior return on investment; and
  • Contributing as a good corporate citizen to each nation and community in which we operate.

Because PPG's reputation rests not only on our ability to be a provider of quality goods and services, but also on our integrity and high ethical standards, the PPG Global Code of Ethics sets forth the principles that apply to all PPG people, everywhere and in every circumstance.

Information on PPG’s various ethics policies, including the Trade Compliance Policy, is contained in the Global Code of Ethics.

Reporting Violations

To report any illegal action or ethics violations, or a) any suspected violations of any U.S. export control laws or regulations, b) PPG’s export compliance policies, controls or procedures, or c) PPG’s Global Code of Ethics related to PPG’s export compliance policies, controls or procedures, contact the Ethics Hotline  or Chief Compliance Officer directly.

Ethics Hotline

PPG provides a “hotline” service to its employees as an additional resource for reporting illegal actions or ethics violations. The hotline service is managed by an independent, third-party firm with representatives who are trained to listen carefully, ask questions and document the situation accurately - and anonymously. Callers are asked to provide a complete account of their concerns so that thorough investigations can be made.

This hotline is also available to third parties – customers, suppliers, anyone – to report illegal actions or ethics violations by PPG employees. If you become aware of any illegal actions or ethics violations by a PPG employee, please email PPG’s Chief Compliance Officer directly, report an incident online, or call the Ethics Hotline provided on the HOTLINE TELEPHONE DIRECTORY.

When there are two numbers listed, please follow the below steps:

After you dial the first number, you may hear a message in English or a tone.
Then dial the second number.
You will hear music while a translator is found which could take up to 5 minutes.

The translator then will greet the employee in their language and ask the questions to complete the hotline call.

However you make your report, remember that it is against PPG policy to retaliate against anyone for making a good-faith report of a violation of law or the Code. Also, all reports are taken in strict confidence and if you request, PPG will make every effort to maintain the anonymity of anyone disclosing such information.

Regardless of who receives your report, they are responsible for ensuring that it is handled properly and that you are treated fairly in the process.
