Our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) journey

We are rapidly growing as an organisation, and we are on an exciting journey to determine our ESG strategy and turn it into a concrete roadmap by the end of 2023.

2023 ESG initiatives

In building our ESG strategy, we are focusing on 3 key activities:


1. Performance baselining

We are assessing the ESG maturity of all of our businesses and benchmarking to industry standard. 

Within our M&A process, all target acquisitions are always subject to ESG due diligence.


2. Double materiality assessment

In order for us to identify the key ESG topics to focus on for our business, we have completed a double materiality assessment - looking at their external impact and financial materiality.


3. Ambition setting

After baselining our ESG performance and determining the material ESG topics for PPG, we will define KPIs and create our ESG multi-year roadmap, which will be rolled out in 2024 and beyond.

Our group wide policies

1 / Code of Conduct

Outlining the ethical standards and behavior expected from employees, promoting a culture of integrity, respect, and compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.

2 / Equal opportunities

Ensuring that all individuals are treated fairly and without discrimination, promoting diversity, inclusivity, and providing equal access to opportunities within the organization.

3 / Close relationships

Establishing guidelines regarding personal relationships among employees to maintain professionalism, prevent conflicts of interest, and ensure a respectful and productive work environment.
