Pareto is a planning and environmental consulting firm located in Burbank California. Pareto provides a full range of planning services, but is noted for its California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) expertise.
The name Pareto was chosen for the firm because we are interested in achieving win/win-planning solutions. Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto (1848-1923) defined the concepts of Pareto efficiency, Pareto improvement and Pareto optimality. A Pareto improvement occurs when at least one individual is made better off, without making anyone else worse off. We see that as the goal of planning.
