Colourful Communities program is PPG’s signature initiative for community engagement efforts.

PITTSBURGH, US: PPG Industries Inc (PPG) announced the completion of a Colourful Communities project that helped to revitalise the streets of the Gamchun Cultural Community in Busan, South Korea.

The Colourful Communities program provides PPG volunteers and products along with financial contributions to bring colour and vitality to communities where the company operates around the world, such as in Busan, where PPG has a manufacturing facility.

Through cooperation with the Saha-gu social welfare centre, a local nonprofit organisation, more than 120 PPG employees and their family members came together to volunteer for six hours painting murals to help revitalise local streets in the town of Gamchun, which is an economically distressed area within the City of Busan.

PPG provided about $23,000 to assist with the project, including 128 gallons of PPG paint products. This Colourful Communities initiative aimed to improve the local environment for the benefit of both senior citizens and visitors.

“It is a great pleasure for us to be engaged with our local community, to share PPG’s values by painting colourful murals on the streets of Gamchun with our employees and families, PPG will continue to support our neighbours and work to revitalise our community,” said James Do, president of PPG Korea.

The Colourful Communities program is PPG’s signature initiative for community engagement efforts, with the aim to protect and beautify the neighbourhoods where PPG operates around the world. The program increases PPG’s commitment to invest in communities and supports projects that transform community assets, providing PPG volunteers and donated PPG products.
