In the third year of New Paint for a New Start, PPG employees will build on the positive impact that new colors and improved learning environments have on students and teachers by volunteering their time, partnering with PPG customers and activating elements of environmental sustainability. Using PPG paint products and color expertise, each project aims to create engaging spaces for students to learn and grow.

“The impacts of a quality education hold significant value and can change the trajectory of a student’s life. Our employee volunteers recognize this as they step into schools and educational spaces to paint classrooms and brighten places where students can thrive,” said Malesia Dunn, executive director, PPG Foundation and corporate global social responsibility. “Each New Paint for a New Start project aims to create joyful spaces where students feel supported and enable possibilities and progress in the lives of young people.”

Most of the transformation projects will use a global color palette, including PPG’s 2024 Color of the Year, Limitless. PPG experts selected colors that pair well with various learning objectives and work to elevate and enhance the physical classroom environments.

“Color is a powerful communicator and can play a meaningful role in engaging students and connecting with learning objectives within a classroom,” said Steve Pocock, PPG vice president EMEA West and Central, Architectural Coatings, and 2024 New Paint for a New Start executive champion. “From Milan, Italy to Zhangjiagang, China and many places in between, PPG volunteers are expanding the transformative impacts of beautifying schools worldwide. In 2024, we’re excited to be joined by several PPG customers to deepen the reach of the initiative.”

In addition to painting spaces, PPG and the PPG Foundation are also supplying several New Paint for a New Start schools with funding for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education supplies.

In 2022 and 2023, more than 60 schools and educational spaces were transformed as part of New Paint for a New Start, improving classrooms and learning spaces for more than 35,000 students and educators. Learn more here.

PPG’s global community engagement efforts and the PPG Foundation aim to bring color and brightness to PPG communities around the world. We invested more than $17.5 million in 2023, supporting hundreds of organizations across nearly 40 countries. By investing in educational opportunities, we help grow tomorrow’s STEM innovators and skilled workforce in fields related to coatings and manufacturing.

CFM International is celebrating certification of the LEAP-powered Airbus A321XLR by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The A321XLR marks the fifth member of the A320neo family aircraft powered by LEAP engines. Supporting aircraft certification were updates to the engine’s type certificates, which EASA and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) granted on July 10. “Certification of the CFM-powered A321XLR is an important milestone in providing our operators much greater route scheduling flexibility,” said Gaël Méheust, president and CEO of CFM International. “The engine was always designed with 35,000-lb. thrust capability for longer range, higher max takeoff weight aircraft. As a result, no engine modifications were required, giving operators the added benefit of 100 percent commonality with their existing A320neo family fleets.” As the aviation industry gathers at the Farnborough International Airshow, trade visitors will be able to see the LEAP-powered A321XLR
