PPG Industries Joins Energy Star Program

PPG Industries has joined ENERGY STAR, a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) aimed at helping to save money and protect the environment through energy-efficient products and practices.




"We've made a fundamental commitment to protect the environment by continuously improving our energy performance," said Victoria M. Holt, senior vice president, glass and fiber glass, in announcing PPG's membership in the ENERGY STAR program. "We believe implementing organization-wide energy management efforts will help PPG enhance its financial health and value and will aid in preserving our world for the future."

Holt co-chairs PPG's energy security and climate change steering committee with James A. Trainham, vice president, science and technology. The steering committee is working to develop an energy reduction plan for all PPG facilities.

“PPG will benchmark and track its energy performance using tools and methods offered through ENERGY STAR,” Trainham said. “We will develop and implement a plan to reduce energy intensity across all our facilities and operations according to the ENERGY STAR energy management strategy, and we will educate PPG employees and the public about the ENERGY STAR partnership.”

PPG is on the leading edge of the green building movement, offering EcoLogical Building Solutions by PPG – an exclusive collection of glass, coatings and paints for sustainable design. Many of these products meet or exceed ENERGY STAR performance levels.

Solarban 70XL glass is a solar control, low-emissivity (low-e) glass that transmits 64 percent of the sun’s visible light while maintaining a solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.27. Along with products such as Solarban 60, Solarban 80 and Solarban z50 low-e glasses, Vistacool subtly reflective, color-enriched glasses, and the Oceans of Color collection of spectrally selective tinted glasses, PPG can offer architects many environmentally progressive glass options.
