The new year brought about a new name for the former Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium, the organization officially dropping PPG from their name as the naming rights agreement that spanned 20 years came to an end.

On December 15 of 2022, the Zoological Society of Pittsburgh and PPG announced in a joint statement that PPG would relinquish its naming rights to the aquarium in order to focus their partnership on STEM education programming.

“Since investing in the naming rights sponsorship in 2002, PPG’s business has evolved and its perspective on where the PPG Foundation can provide the strongest value as a community partner has continued to transform,” said Malesia Dunn, executive director of PPG Foundation and Corporate Global Social Responsibility, said in the joint news release. “We look forward to continuing our relationship with the Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium through STEM educational programming.”
