Our Commitment to Environmental Responsibility

Your reputation depends on getting the job done, and getting it done right. Today, in order to exceed your customers' expectations, not only does your paint need to have great coverage and durability, it must meet a growing list of national, regional, local and customer-driven regulations. PPG Paints™ offers a variety of zero- or low-VOC* products, assisting architects, building owners, homebuilders and professional painters in being green. We are committed to offering products that meet the most stringent regulatory standards while delivering the performance you and your customers expect.

*Colorants added to these base paints may increase VOC level significantly depending on color choice.


To achieve our goals of being both a fiscally-sound and environmentally-responsible firm, PPG has re-engineered many of the manufacturing processes at its paint facilities to minimize energy consumption, improve air and water quality and cut waste.
