Government Group Gives Award to Paramount for Climate Change Efforts
Since 1989, Paramount has implemented programs and actions to promote environmental health. Because of these efforts, the City has been given a Silver Sustainability Beacon Spotlight Award by the Institute of Local Governments.
The Beacon Award honors voluntary efforts by cities and counties to save energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and adopt policies and programs that promote sustainability.
Paramount is one of 130 jurisdictions throughout California that have been recognized by this program for “implementing effective climate action practices that are improving the quality of life in their communities” and being “models of leadership at the local level.”
The City is committed to working with residents, businesses, regional partners, and local utilities to make a greener, more sustainable community for the future.
