Our Impact

Numbers are only part of our story.


Since the Colorful Communities initiative began in 2015, we’ve made measurable progress toward covering PPG’s entire global footprint with improvement projects. What the numbers can’t show, however, is the differences we’ve made in the hearts of our neighbors and our employee volunteers. We’ve covered a lot of walls and helped brighten a lot of neighborhoods, but it’s not just about the paint. It’s about the smiles on the faces of the thousands of children, seniors, homeless and patients whose lives have been rejuvenated by our efforts. These are the metrics that matter. And it’s why we love to paint.
