Letter for University Leaders from Rector of Universitas Indonesia
Dear University Leaders,
Since 2010, UI GreenMetric World University Rankings has ranked universities worldwide according to six indicators: setting and infrastructure, energy and climate change, waste management, water, and transportation, and education. 619 universities from 76 countries were ranked in 2017 (http://greenmetric.ui.ac.id/overall-ranking-2017/). Complementing other University rankings which can be found on IREG Observatory on Academic Ranking and Excellence, UI GreenMetric is the first and only ranking that has established a Voluntary Standard for improving university infrastructure and action towards sustainable campuses worldwide.
Currently, we have 25 active national coordinators in middle East, Asia, South America and Europe. In 2017, we have held an international and 9 national workshops. In this workshop, Universities can share their best practices and learn from each other experience and current development.
This year the main themes is “Universities, Impacts, and sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)”. Thus, our questionnaire looks in more details on efforts and programs to improve sustainability on campus.
