The UI GreenMetric World University Ranking is an initiative of ProSPER.Net member Universitas Indonesia which was launched in 2010. The aim is to show the current conditions and policies related to Green Campus and Sustainability in the Universities all over the world.
Universities that wish to participate are asked to provide numeric data on a number of criteria that can give a picture of their commitment to the greening of their campus and putting in place environmentally friendly policies that support sustainability. The criteria include such baseline information as the size of the university, both spatially and in terms of population, the campus location and the amount of green space; and also information on energy use, transport, water use and recycling and waste treatment. In addition, the survey includes efforts towards establishing green policies and management.
