Bellingham, WA – Peak Sustainability Group, a locally owned consulting company in Bellingham is celebrating its 11th anniversary on March 1. Formerly Kulshan Services, the company rebranded to Peak Sustainability Group in 2021 to reflect regional expansion, a growing team, and focus on sustainability and climate change. Peak works with businesses and communities seeking effective and innovative ways to address climate and sustainability challenges through strategic communications and sound science.

Peak founder, David Roberts, looks back on over a decade in business and a 40-year career

“Tremendous company growth, our rebrand, and regional expansion are huge milestones for us. During the pandemic, we survived and thrived and attracted an incredibly talented team including affiliate and partner relationships giving us significant capacity to work with communities and businesses throughout the Pacific Northwest. We are working on the frontlines during a critical decade facing significant climate and sustainability challenges. Being in this business has been daunting and yet hugely rewarding.

  • In 2021, Peak hired Janet Clawson, CFO and Wendy St. Claire, HR Manager.
  • In 2020 and 2021, the company also brought on sustainability coaches, Jessa Clark, Kat Klass, and Sam Humphreys as well as climate change and strategic communication expertise with Sarah Parker and Natalie Sacker.
