Alice Krekt (1971) is programme director at Deltalinqs Climate Program (DCP).
Deltalinqs promotes the common interests of over 95% of all logistic, ports and industrial enterprises in the Rotterdam port area. Over 700 companies from fourteen different sectors joined the association of entrepreneurs. The Port of Rotterdam contributes 6,2% (€45,6 billion) to the national GDP. The Portprovides work, either directly or indirectly, to over 385,000 people. Deltalinqs strives to strengthen Rotterdam’s competitiveness, sustainable growth, and social and political acceptability for all activities within the port and industrial area; all for the benefit of our members.
As Deltalinqs Climate Program (DCP) director, Alice initiates and leads projects to reach the Paris Climate Agreement objectives with her team members and private and public partners. By initiating concrete projects in industry and logistics chains, the partners work on three topics: energy efficiency, sustainable fuels, and sustainable resources. Within these three subject areas, DCP’s role is to connect the right parties, inform and inspire these parties, and start innovation projects. With our members as ambassadors, Letters of Cooperation are agreed upon yearly; for cooperation as well as for projects such as H-vision (usage of blue hydrogen for industry and energy), energy mix, and field lab electrification. Blue hydrogen is one of the major building blocks towards a CO2 neutral industry.
Alice has over 20 years of experience in port strategy and development. Amongst others, she worked at Port of Rotterdam and Arcadis N.V.. Both in the Netherlands and internationally, she led teams that made concrete steps towards investment decisions, for instance on inland waterway transport in Brazil, with UN Habitat in Indonesia, and in several ports in the Netherlands. Alice builds bridges between organisations and strives to connect people within strategic cooperations.
