The UI GreenMetric World University Rankings is an initiative of Universitas Indonesia which was launched in 2010. The aim of the rankings is to provide the result of online survey regarding the current condition and policies related to Green Campus and Sustainability in the Universities all over the world. It is expected that by drawing the attention of university leaders and stakeholders, more attention will be given to combating global climate change, energy and water conservation, waste recycling, and green transportation.
For the past 7 years, UI GreenMetric has become one of the flagship programs of Universitas Indonesia that ranked universities throughout the world according to indicators of campus environmental issues such as setting and infrastructure, energy, waste management, water, and transportation, and education. During the rankings process, many universities performance in UI GreenMetric have improved. In order to increase the performance of each university in UI GreenMetric, universities need to share their sustainability’s achievement and current condition in a forum.
