Global Advocacy



Participating in the Political and Public Policy Process
PPG believes in participating in the governmental processes in the nations and communities in which it operates. PPG supports policies related to “green” building, wind and solar energy, and the responsible exploration and development of onshore and offshore energy resources. PPG’s commitment also includes participating in the political process, from engaging government officials to educating PPG employees. PPG’s U.S. federal lobbying expenditures for 2011 were $866,831. In addition, PPG's “Better Government Team,” a U.S. political action committee (PAC) that is fully funded by voluntary contributions from PPG employees, made disbursements in 2011 that totaled $80,975, as detailed at left. All contributions to various political candidates and parties are approved by a committee of PPG executives.

PPG’s Government Affairs team provides a variety of resources, such as posters, side-by-side candidate comparisons and employee lunch-and-learn events, to help inform employees about the political process and encourage them to vote. PPG Government Affairs provides nonpartisan information focused on candidates’ positions on business policy issues, and it does not endorse candidates or tell employees how to vote.
