The UI GreenMetric World University Ranking is an initiative of Universitas Indonesia launched in 2010. The objective of the ranking is to elaborate the results of an online survey on the current conditions and policies of Green Campuses and the sustainability of universities around the world.
The tools used to evaluate the universities are based on a philosophy that includes three factors: environment, economy and equity. The criteria take into account aspects relevant to sustainability and are considered the areas in which the universities are located, whether urban, suburban or rural and the presence of green spaces.
