UI GreenMetric World University Ranking was established in 2010 by Universitas Indonesia (UI) in order to promote awareness in institutions of higher education of the value of putting in place policies and systems that will have a positive impact on global warming and climate change.
The ranking criteria include the size of the university and its location — urban, suburban or rural — as well as the degree of green spaces on campus. The ranking also evaluates electricity consumption, transport, water usage and waste management, in addition to the administration’s dealing with the issue of sustainability through policies, actions and communication.
