PPG Named to NAACP's Inaugural Equity, Inclusion and Empowerment Index


PPG (NYSE:PPG) today announced it was recently named to the inaugural
National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP)
Equity, Inclusion and Empowerment Index. The index assesses U.S.
companies on their commitment to racial and ethnic equity in every
aspect of their business and operations.

"PPG is honored to be recognized by the NAACP for our efforts in
creating and fostering a workplace that is equitable, just and
inclusive," said Herve Tiberghien, PPG vice president, human resources.
"The diversity of our employees allows PPG to solve our customers' own
diverse needs in every corner of the globe and to continue to protect
and beautify the world."

The NAACP selected the 200 corporations featured in the Equity,
Inclusion and Empowerment Index from Morningstar's U.S. Large-Mid Index,
which targets 90 percent of U.S. equity market capitalization. The
companies were ranked in the index based on their overall Minority
Empowerment Score, which evaluates board diversity, discrimination
policy, diversity programs, supply chain monitoring, community
development programs, health and safety management systems and more.

"Diversity of employees is a core focus area for PPG, because unique
perspectives across multiple nationalities, cultures, languages and
ethnicities allow the company to meet challenges quickly, creatively and
effectively," said Tiberghien.

PPG is committed to providing a workplace that embraces a culture of
diversity and inclusion. The PPG Minority Leadership Council, created in
2005, promotes minority networking, career development and minority
