Pete is a graduate of Bowdoin College, with a degree in Environmental Studies, Spanish, and Biology, with a focus on food systems and plant responses to climate change. He has since worked in the private and public sectors: at New England Country Foods, a commercial food manufacturer specializing in transparent, ethical sourcing, and small-batch production; and at the Mayor's Office of Food Initiatives at the City of Boston, beginning as an intern, spending a year and half as the Program Manager, and then 6 months as the acting Director, before moving on. While there, he co-piloted Boston's first residential composting program, worked to expand the Bounty Buck Program (which provides double value coupons for local produce, meats, and fish to SNAP recipients at Boston’s Farmers Markets), supported the community process and mayoral signing of a comprehensive urban agriculture zoning article, is currently working with the Boston Public Libraries to pilot seed sharing at three neighborhood locations. Now, Pete works at the Global Impact Investing Network, on the IRIS (Impact Reporting and Investment Standards) team, helping to develop the standard's taxonomy, and encouraging adoption by impact investing organizations, globally.
