How did sustainability start for Tony’s? Our sustainability journey can be traced back to 2002, when we began sourcing Organic, Fair Trade, Shade Grown coffee. Since then, we moved to 100% green power, doubled our roasting efficiency, offset our roastery’s carbon footprint, and continue to support causes that we care about. Our commitment to sourcing…

"Studies show that the most sustainable companies are also the most profitable." Harvard Business Review
"Cities are home to 54% of the global population and consume approximately 70% of energy and produce 75% of global carbon emissions. Over half of our 2030 GHG reduction potential actually lies in ... small human settlements." World Economic Forum
We were thankful to find sustainability expertise with Peak Sustainability Group. Their team examined our carbon footprint from production output, our roastery’s footprint, and our delivery fleet’s fuel usage. By measuring what matters, we have been able to better tell our story and move boldly forward on our sustainability journey.
Peak's facilitation was essential in our organization’s ability to address critical issues with a large stakeholder group among a diversity of topics and interests. Their ability to formulate issues and move the audience and agenda in a short time frame helped us to formulate strategies and next direction.
The people at Peak facilitated all Climate Task Force meetings to help Bellingham create a climate plan. I was impressed by their reliability, consistency, and steady commitment to excellence. I would recommend Peak without reservation for work involving high analytical and political complexity on projects of critical real-world importance.
Peak's work is thorough and exacting and their integrity is beyond reproach. Their technical experience and background helps clients understand complex issues and potential unintended consequences of a range of actions. David Roberts, the founder, knows the importance of stakeholder engagement and how enduring agreements come from informed consensus.
Aspirational recycling is a big problem here in the San Juan Islands. Your videos candidly illustrated our commingled recycling challenges. Peak's community outreach, videos, and survey data provided great material for our “Talking Trash” Community Forum. Peak's outreach efforts are already improving the recycling contamination issues at our Transfer Station.
Call Peak if you need environmental services. Their team has done a great job addressing the complexities of Swen Larson Quarry's planning and permit process. Peak's ability to develop strategy, patiently communicate, and advocate for us has smoothed the way with the regulatory agencies. As a result, we will have predictability for our operations for many years to come.
I have worked with a lot of consultants and David Roberts is different. Our watershed process with stakeholders was successful because he and his team know how to listen. People participated because they felt heard and it was worth their time.
Since 2012, Peak has delivered the Managing Stormwater Facilities Training to homeowners. Peak provides an excellent overview of stormwater management. Their step-by-step instructions for routine maintenance can prolong the life of stormwater facilities, improve appearance, and keep them functioning properly. Their presentations play a key role in the success of our program.
Thank you to Peak for your excellent and amazing ability to turn a 90-minute discussion into a succinct written summary with coherent key messages.
Peak has been a tremendous help to our internal team. I recommend Peak to anyone looking for honest, precise, and innovative work involving carbon footprint or other packaging-related environmental challenges and opportunities.
The charrette and visioning session Peak facilitated with the Community Boating Center was a significant catalyst for the support recently secured for the new Fairhaven Small Watercraft Launch and Dock with funds from the Port of Bellingham and ALEA grant.
