2010-08-12
ROSEVILLE, CA, August 12, 2010 (Press-News.org) Paramount Equity has been recognized by BERC as a certified sustainable business. The Sacramento Sustainable Business Program promotes businesses that take voluntary actions to prevent pollution and conserve resources.

To become certified sustainable, a business must implement measures and practices in at least one of the following categories: energy conservation, water conservation, pollution prevention, solid waste reduction, and/or green building. While only one category is necessary to become certified, Paramount Equity has fulfilled the requirements in all of the categories.

"We all live in this community and it is important that the same pride and care we take in our home is reflected in work environment as well. We are proud to be a part of this elite group of environmentally conscious business owners and employees." says Hayes Barnard, president of Paramount Equity.

There are only 250 other businesses in the Sacramento area that have qualified for this certification. Paramount Equity will be recognized at the Sacramento Sustainable Business annual awards ceremony on September 30th.
