Climate Action

We engage communities in climate planning

There’s no doubt that climate change – unpredictable storms, drought, wildfires, sea level rise, and more – is impacting communities and their economies, infrastructure, public health, and ecosystems right now. Community preparation is critically important in safeguarding our communities and building policies and plans toward a more climate-resilient future. We work with municipalities, businesses, ports, educational institutions, Tribes, and other entities to meet their climate planning initiatives.

At Peak, we work to improve communities’ climate response by:

Defining strategies to reduce GHG emissions

Charting steps and policies to get to net zero

Assessing climate risks and threats for your community

Identifying ways to build resilience against risks

Exploring innovative renewable energy solutions

Interactively engaging community in planning

Testimonials

“I worked with the Peak team on a large and complicated project to develop a climate action plan for the City of Bellingham. I was impressed by Peak’s reliability, consistency, and steady commitment to excellence. I would recommend Peak without reservations for similar projects involving work of high analytical and political complexity, and with critical real-world importance.”

Mark Gardner | City of Bellingham, City Council Legislative Analyst 

“Peak has produced a technically-sound and politically sensitive update to the City’s climate action plan. Their research, coordination and flexibility make for excellent project partners.”

Clare Fogelsong | City of Bellingham, Public Works 

“Kudos to Peak for their facilitation role in guiding the SLS and IT work over the last year or more in the Snohomish and Stillaguamish watersheds. We are seeing some good momentum with frameworks taking shape and a robust work plan to direct this work. Thank you for advancing integrated floodplain management and collaboration in these watersheds.”

Jessica Hammill, Project Specialist IV, Snohomish County Public Works

Peak’s three-session course on Climate Change for the Academy for Lifelong Learning was impressive and greatly exceeded all expectations! Clearly the depth of information was meaningful to many. David Roberts gave an outstanding presentation relevant to local perspectives. This is the best (and most current) climate change info we have ever received.”
