  2. 2. Imagine... Ahead of the Green Wave Airplane cabin windows that dim at the touch of a button. Sustainability has long been an underlying principle at PPG. Many of the innovations we’ve introduced over the last several years have provided our Metal coatings that help keep buildings cooler and change color with the viewing angle. customers with an environmental or sustainability advantage. In the paint Automotive paint technology that shrinks total costs and manufacturing footprints industry, we were one of the earliest pioneers to introduce low-volatile organic for carmakers. compound (VOC) products. Our RIPOLIN® Green was one of the first paint brands in France to offer product formulations with a high concentration—up Environmentally friendly marine coatings that can save fuel on every route. to 98 percent—of natural raw materials.

At PPG, these are just a few of the ways that we’re making sure our company—and our customers—stand out in a competitive world. And we’re doing it by focusing on three things: innovation, sustainability and color. Leading In Color Besides our focus on innovation and sustainability, there is another chapter in At PPG, Innovation is Nothing New PPG’s success story: our color leadership. Our presence in a wide array of business and geographic markets gives us a unique vantage point from which As the world leader in coatings and specialty materials today, we have always led to observe and translate emerging global color trends for our customers with innovation. We truly believe that innovation is a rite of survival, not only for applications—from decorative to automotive color, from residential to commercial our company, but for our customers as well. to consumer goods and industrial design.

Our wide selection of glass products today includes STARPHIRE® Ultra-Clear glass, the most transparent architectural glass available, capping more than a century of glass performance enhancements. Innovations such as these—and more on the pages that follow—are key developments for our company. But the real impact occurs when we share the advantages of these innovations with our customers. That’s when, together, we benefit from increased market share, access to new markets, and further opportunities to expand the playing field.1 2
  3. 3. CONSUMER PRODUCTS Colorful Thinking Letting consumers introduce a little color into their lives, and a little of themselves into their color choices. PPG touches the lives of consumers in ways both seen and unseen. As a pioneer in color, we engineer coatings using unique pigments and special effects that speak to consumers, move products and build our customers’ market share and reputation for innovation. Our vast product array and application expertise mean we can add color value to a variety of surfaces including eye-popping consumer electronics, lus- trous lawn furniture, vibrant washers and dryers, brilliant barbecue grills and tool storage cabinets. Making the difference in color. The work we do in creating colorful new coatings has proven to make a marked difference to consumers as they choose their products—in turn making a difference to manufacturers’ bottom lines. Studies show that color can be 85 percent of the driving factor in why a consumer chooses a particular product. PPG provides our cus- tomers with color consultation, color matching, trend forecasting and other color tools and services to better position themselves with their customers. And beyond. Beyond color, we work with our customers to help them achieve the desired look, feel and image for their product’s surface. What we make also helps to make products tougher and greener—with everything from solvent-free powder coatings that emit virtually no VOCs to packaging coatings and inks that protect and decorate metal cans. PPG also has a hand in other products that end up in consumers’ hands. For example, Transitions Optical, a joint venture of PPG and Essilor, is the leading provider of adaptive lenses to optical manufacturers. TRANSITIONS® lenses, which darken when exposed to sunlight, are the #1 eyecare professional-recommended photochromic lenses worldwide.3 4
