As part of Our Ocean Mission we set up a long-term partnership with TU DELFT. TU DELFT combines the fields of science, engineering and design, together with students, to provide world-class research in a socially responsible manner.
TU Delft and o’neill have chosen to work together:
To solve challenges around sustainability and circularity in the fashion industry.
To access innovation and research that can protect our people and planet.
