Welcome to the network, Spiritus!
Spiritus Development was founded by Ross Gilbert in Brighton, England in 2010 as a web based outlet for various ideas, findings and experiences surrounding sustainable development and renewable energy development. Following Ross’ relocation to Northern Germany Spiritus has been incorporated as a new business to undertaken renewable energy and property development projects of various shapes and sizes.
Their philosophy is one of continual improvement and Spiritus provides the vehicle to put freely into practice our concepts, ideas and beliefs. “Our economic system has developed blinkers for the environment that sustains it. It concerns me that our planet is creaking under the weight of overconsumption. I want to change that. I want to play my part in creating a world the way I’d like to see it, the world I’d like to live in, the world I’d like my daughter to grow up in,” says Ross when asked why he joined 1% for the Planet. Ross also sees the 1% movement as a unique tool to embed himself and Spiritus deeper into the community in which they live and work.
