PPG Industries’ flat glass business announced that it has joined green building councils in Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico and Peru. All five councils are members of the World Green Building Council (WorldGBC).

“We are grateful for PPG’s support of our work, which promotes sustainability in the building environment,” says Cristina Gamboa, chief executive officer of Colombia’s Green Building Council (GBC) and chair of the WorldGBC’s Americas Network. “PPG has a long track record of commitment to fostering green building, and their best practices are an inspiration to the network of councils that partner with us under the World Green Building Council’s Americas Network.”

Deron Patterson, PPG international sales manager, flat glass, adds, “PPG’s membership in these influential organizations will expand our opportunities to participate in the global sustainable-building movement and to help architects maximize the performance benefits of PPG’s energy-efficient glass technologies. We are eager to become active in the important work of these councils and to enhance the implementation of green building practices throughout Latin America and around the world.”

PPG has been a member of the U.S. Green Building Council for ten years.
