For the past 13 years, UI GreenMetric has become one of the flagship programs of Universitas Indonesia that ranks universities around the world according to appointed indicators of campus environmental sustainability issues, such as setting and infrastructure, energy, waste management, water, transportation, and education. This ranking is one of the university’s efforts in promoting sustainability on campuses and also in involving stakeholders in any kind of effort to create a sustainable environment.
UI GreenMetric has a strong commitment to becoming a global platform for university students in the world to become active players in addressing the environmental challenges facing the world today. With the principle of mutual cooperation and sharing experiences, UI GreenMetric aims to raise awareness of universities as agents of change for a better world. The ranking is conducted through an online questionnaire system in which each university provided data about sustainability indicators. The data is then automatically processed into a ranking.
This program has been conducted since 2010, and the participation of universities around the world continue to increase. In 2010, approximately nearly 100 universities from 35 countries participated in the UI GreenMetric. In 2022, there are 1050 Universities from 85 countries. The increasing number shows that this program can grab the attention of many universities throughout the world.
During the ranking process, many universities ‘performance in UI GreenMetric has been improved. In order to increase the performance of each university in UI GreenMetric, universities need to share their sustainability achievements and current condition in a forum. 1050 universities in UI GreenMetric Network are good examples of how sustainability policies can be implemented in universities in some respects such as setting and infrastructure, energy and climate change, waste and water management, transportation and also education. These universities can share information about the implementation of sustainability policies in each university.
International Workshop on UI GreenMetric aims to:
- Disseminate and evaluate the implementation of the UI GreenMetric Rankings in participating universities worldwide.
- Share information about sustainability to improve the campus by studying some best practices.
- Provide an opportunity for universities on the top rank in UI GreenMetric to share their university’s policy, programs and implementation.
- Provide an opportunity for cooperation in sustainability management on campuses.
