PPG has received the 2020-2021 Pro-Ethics seal, which is granted by the Brazil Ministry of Transparency and Federal Comptroller General (CGU) in partnership with the Ethos Institute.
PPG was the only coatings company to be recognized in both the current and 2018-2019 editions of the program. It operates manufacturing facilities in Sumaré and Américo Brasiliense, São Paulo; Gravataí, Rio Grande; and Pinhais, Paraná.
The objective of the Pro-Ethical Company Program is to evaluate and publicize companies that voluntarily adopt practices to build an environment of integrity and trust in business relationships, including those involving the public sector.
“PPG has always prioritized ethical business practices and takes its role in creating a responsible business environment seriously, and the Pro-Ethics seal recognizes our commitment to integrity throughout the PPG value chain,” said Marcio Grossmann, PPG general manager, Brazil. “PPG’s compliance program has always been quite robust and mature.”
Through the program, PPG assesses risks, improves controls and evaluates whether they are effective; trains key employees and business partners on the Brazilian anti-corruption law; implements due diligence processes for third parties and strategic activities; and facilitates a corporate culture where people feel safe to raise issues, concerns or ideas.
