Most of the sustainability projects at TU Delft are achieved through the help of our partners.
These partners can be either student initiatives, organisations related to the TU Delft and/or external organisations:
Besides the Green Office, there are numerous other student initiatives present on our campus with whom we work in close cooperation:
