PPG offers stats on its environmental impact

Less than a month ago, PPG (NYSE: PPG) faced a $1.2 million penalty from the Pennsylvania Department for Environmental Protection for pollution at a former glass facility site in Ford City. As with many manufacturers of its size, the company has had its fair share of environmental protection groups angrily knocking on its door regarding clean or water violations.   This week, PPG released its 2018 Sustainability Report working to paint a greener picture of the company’s environmental impact. PPG said it aims to reach 25 percent reduction in total waste disposal intensity, or metric tons of waste per 100 metric tons of production, by 2025 from its 2017 baseline of 3.41 metric tons.
