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.

 

Thousands of Hours Served!

Members of the Paramount Volunteer Crew give thousands of hours to projects throughout our community. These activities range from serving meals at the Ronald McDonald House to helping students complete their FAFSA(financial aid) forms; from cheering on athletes at the Special Olympics to picking up trash and leaves in a neighboring community garden.

 

The Season of Giving

Each year during the holiday season, Paramount partners with
a local non-profit organization for a holiday giving drive.  Last year, the studio joined with Aviva Center, a nonprofit that provides treatment to at-risk youth and their families.  Employees were able to “adopt” a teen girl enrolled in Aviva’s high school program.

NATIONAL WOMEN & GIRLS HIV/AIDS AWARENESS DAY

More than 30 volunteers, including many employees’ daughters went to Project Angel Food, to pack breakfast deliveries, make jewelry for fundraisers and decorate birthday bags for homebound clients, in honor of National Women & Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.

 

NATIONAL BLACK HIV/AIDS AWARENESS DAY

Paramount volunteers joined the staff of AIDS Project LA in Baldwin Hills as they hosted an open house and HIV testing event in honor of National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.  While some volunteers distributed flyers and information about the clinic’s services, others welcomed guests and ushered them through a tour of the newly renovated facility. 

 

2014 AIDS Walk LA

Paramount Pictures has been a proud sponsor of AIDS Walk LA since the event’s inception in 1985, providing support and a team every year.  This year we continued the 30-year tradition with our largest team to date - 250 Paramount Pictures and Viacom Media Networks employees, their families, friends, and pups.

Thanks to a fantastic Leadership Committee, honorary captain Amy Powell and our volunteers!  Paramount raised nearly $25,000 and was, once again, named among the top ten fundraising teams.

 

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.
