We were thankful to find the expert help in our own backyard with Peak Sustainability Group. Peak helped us to examine our carbon footprint: 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.

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.

It’s important to feel good about the work you do.

You know your actions speak volumes and people are paying attention.

Economic, social, and environmental pressures need to be addressed. But, uncertainty about next steps can be overwhelming. Finding the expertise you need and devoting resources and energy to make it happen often are easily put on the back burner.

We understand. It can be a difficult place from which to move forward.

What if you knew where to start?

You want to anticipate the future and prepare ahead of time.

It is so much better to get on top of things.

With the right support and information, anything is possible. Your commitment to action will create expected and unexpected value. Clarity opens up new opportunities and leverages your efforts.
