PPG has been included in the “2022 America’s Most Just Companies” list for its CSR efforts.

PPG has recently announced that it has been included in the “2022 America’s Most Just Companies” list, a ranking managed by JUST Capital that selects the largest publicly traded companies in the United States that perform better on the issues prioritised by citizens.

The list recognised the companies across 20 different business categories such as environmental performance, diversity and inclusion, community engagement, ethics, human rights, health and safety and liveable wages.

The company scored an overall improvement of 274 spots since 2020, outperforming the industry average in almost all categories. PPG ranked 1st in transparent communication, 2nd for community engagement and received high marks also for environmental and product sustainability.

“With more than 50,000 employees and operations in around 75 countries, we recognize the tremendous positive impact we can have on our customers, our employees, our communities and the environment. In turn, we have an obligation – and a commitment – to continuously improve our sustainable business practices. PPG’s inclusion on this prestigious list underscores this commitment, and our improved ranking demonstrates that we continue to make strides,” stated Diane Kappas, PPG vice president for global sustainability.

JUST Capital’s annual list ranks around 1,000 public U.S. companies from the Russell 1000 Index, that represents more than 90% of the U.S. stock market value. The evaluated issues are selected from comprehensive quantitative surveys and qualitative focus groups related to the public attitudes toward corporate social responsibility.
