ParamountCares Initiative

Acting responsibly is an integral part of our company. At Paramount, we strive to take accountability for our actions. We encourage all our stakeholders and members of the Paramount family to become catalysts for social change by actively supporting projects & activities that help improve the lives of all those that are part of our community.

Protecting the Planet

At Paramount, we are committed to using resources wisely and encourage our employees to do their part in protecting our planet. Through volunteering time and effort, we strive to work together to strengthen relationships as we contribute to the bettering of our natural world.

Tree Planting at La Mesa Watershed

On November 9, 2015 our volunteers donated and planted 150 seedlings at the La Mesa Watershed Foundation. They received training beforehand on tips to ensure the longevity, growth and survival of the young plants.

Building Better Communities

We are passionate about serving our community, and helping to build sustainable communities through participating in livelihood projects and community service programs. Our employees participate in these events to share their expertise and provide support to charitable causes.

Activities for the Elderly

Last November 4, 2017, 31 employee volunteers went to Hospicio de San Jose. The aim of the visit was to help keep the elderly connected with the society as well as make them feel loved and cared for. A total of 65 people from Hospicio de San Jose(HDSJ) joined the activity. Volunteers organized various activities like playing games, dancing, and videoke challenge to keep everyone engaged and hyped up. Of course, no gathering is complete without food, volunteers and everyone from HDSJ shared a simple feast to celebrate the day

Museo Pambata Art Activity & Museum Tour

Last October 22, 2017. In partnership with Museo Pambata, Paramount sponsored 30 kids from Hospicio de San Jose, allowing them to experience the fun learning activities on the museum's educational tour and art sessions. Best of all, 30 kids and 20 volunteers went home all smiles that day!

Improving quality of life

Our company highly prioritizes the well-being of our employees, as well as the well-being those that are part of the communities that we live in. We continually challenge ourselves to stay true to this mission by finding innovative ways and partnerships in order to create programs and events to support our communities' health and welfare.

Blood Letting Drive with Red Cross

In partnership with the Philippine Red Cross, Paramount employees participated in a blood donation campaign on October 6, 2017. A total of 70 volunteers signed up, and 34 volunteers successfully donated blood to the campaign.

Activities for Cancer Patients

Paramount volunteers went last November 18, 2017 to PCMC and visited the children’s ward wherein volunteers got a chance to talk to the families and learn about the different conditions that the kids were experiencing. Volunteers distributed simple tokens/ gifts from Paramount (toys and food). A total of 32 volunteers signed up for the activity and were able to reach out to 150 patients.
