Whether around the studio lot, on location for production or in our daily lives "Green. It's paramount to us."
Paramount's green initiative encourages eco-friendly behavior and business practices throughout the company. The Green Action Team, a coalition of employees representing a range of departments, drives the effort and has spearheaded a variety of projects. Highlights include:
E-Waste & Cell Phone Recycling
Each year, employees turn in hundreds of items including old VCRs, telephones, computers, televisions & other electrical equipment. The safe recycling of these items prevent hazardous materials from entering our landfills. In celebration of Earth Day, the Green Action Team organized a cell phone recycling drive on the lot. Collection bins were placed at the main studio gates and food service locations, collecting dozens of old phones & chargers.
In coordination with the Paramount Volunteer Crew, employees spend hundreds of volunteer hours working on various environmentally friendly projects, including mulching & harvesting at a community garden, cleaning up the beach and the LA River, and planting trees at local schools.
