Di Gilpi, , Special Advisor 90 North Foundation

We are delighted to announce Di (UK) has agreed to become a Special Advisor to 90 North Foundation. Di Gilpin is the founder and CEO of the Smart Green Shipping Alliance (SGSA) – a collaborative industry initiative created to build technically, commercially and environmentally superior systems solutions for the shipping sector.

To this end, the SGSA has brought together experts from 170 countries with the aim for all shipping reaching the UK to be powered by renewable energy by 2030, ahead of the shipping industry’s target of 50% by 2050. Its approach involves accelerating projects through co-creation – transferring technology and knowledge from offshore yacht racing, Formula One, renewable energy, aviation and defence – to complement commercial maritime expertise.

Di also sits on the UK Department for Transport’s Clean Maritime Council and the EU’s Waterborne Green Shipping Expert Group. She was also recently included in BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour programme’s ‘Power List’.
