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.


Green Volunteering

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.



E-Waste Collection & Recycling

Twice a year, the studio hosts a recycling drive to collect unwanted personal electronic waste (e-waste) from the Paramount Pictures community.  The E-Waste Drive raises green awareness and offers employees an easy way to recycle their own electronics. In June, employees recycled phones, DVD players, VCRS, televisions, cameras and computers, totaling 2,000 pounds.

Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

In 2012, Paramount installed four electric vehicle charging stalls on the studio lot. These charging stations are available for use 24 hours a day/7 days a week and open to all Paramount Pictures’ employees and guests.

Why drive electric? Electric vehicles emit few to zero emissions while driving on battery power.
