“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 VP, 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.
