FORTUNE has published its annual ranking of “World’s Most Admired Companies.” PPG has featured in the top 5 ranks within the chemical category for the past three years. However, for the first time, PPG has ranked #1 in the chemicals category for 2017! 

 The “World’s Most Admired Companies” list is considered the definitive indicator on corporate reputations, and is based on a survey of around 4,000 executives, directors and analysts representing approximately 650 companies from more than 30 countries.

 PPG ranked #1 for multiple key attributes of reputation, such as people management, use of corporate assets, quality of management, financial soundness, long term investment value and global competitiveness. PPG also ranked highly for the other three key attributes of reputation, which helped determine the final decision.

Jean-Marie Greindl, President, PPG EMEA, stated: “PPG are proud of this recognition and accomplishment for the company. Every day, the efforts of all PPG people to “protect and beautify the world” also help to protect and maintain PPG’s reputation with the outside world. I can only thank all PPG staff for their ongoing dedication to PPG”.
