La Universidad Autónoma de Occidente ocupó el puesto 67 en la clasificación UI GreenMetric World University Ranking, publicada por la Universidad de Indonesia. La Universidad Autónoma de Occidente de Cali es la primera más sostenible de Colombia y tercera de Latinoamérica, según la clasificación UI GreenMetric World University Ranking que publicó la Universidad de Indonesia. En el ranking, que evaluó la sostenibilidad ambiental de 619 instituciones de educación superior a nivel mundial en 2017, la universidad colombiana ocupó el puesto 67. Lea también: La sostenibilidad no llega a los territorios.  Este logro supone un avance en las acciones académicas, de investigación y de proyección social, realizadas en el marco del proyecto Campus Sostenible, que promueve el compromiso y la responsabilidad ambiental en la universidad, teniendo en cuenta que el año anterior estuvo en el puesto 154 de ranking, y en el 163 para el 2015. Puede leer: La universidad privada más verde. “Pienso que este ranking es una forma de medir la sostenibilidad universitaria y su nueva forma de evaluación replanteó a muchas universidades en el ranking para ser más evidente y menos cuantitativo. Nos vimos beneficiados porque pudimos mostrar mucho más de nuestras acciones sostenibles”, aseguró Carlos Borrero, miembro del proyecto Campus Sostenible. Para reconocer los campus universitarios más verdes del mundo, la Universidad de Indonesia tiene en cuenta factores como los logros en temas relacionados con entorno y la infraestrucura, en el cual laAutónoma de Occidente obtuvo un puntaje de 677; energía y cambio climático, 1.191; agua, 750; residuos, 1.551; transporte, 811; y educación, 965 puntos. Así, la institución logró una sumatoria de 5.245 puntos. “La forma de calificar de la Universidad de Indonesia en el GreenMetric cambió, ya no solo solicitan datos sino evidencias. Por ello, enviamos archivos, fotografías y vídeos de las acciones sostenibles de las cuales tenemos la información actualizada y de nuestra mejora continua”, sostuvo Borrero. ¿Cómo lo lograron? El ascenso continuo de la Universidad Autónoma de Occidente en el ranking se debe, sobre todo, a la realización de proyectos que contribuyen a la producción de energía limpia. Lea también: Promueven la hidroelectricidad como fuente de energía limpia y sostenible. “Influyó en el tema de energía, la segunda fase del Sistema Solar Fotovoltaico, proyectos como el cambio de iluminación fluorescente ailuminación LED y el cambio de tecnología del sistema de enfriamiento del aire acondicionado del Edificio Central. Estos aspectos mejoraron la eficiencia y automatización del Campus”, indicó Borrero. Agregó que, para el año 2018, la universidad cuenta con varias iniciativas de sostenibilidad enmarcadas dentro del proyecto de Campus Sostenible y del Plan 2030 de la Institución. “Seguiremos trabajando en acciones que contribuyan a ser más eficientes, debido a que el próximo año habrá más consumo energético con el ingreso de ascensores en los edificios de aulas y en Bienestar Universitario, así como el sistema de aires acondicionados en los salones de clases. Por ello, debemos ocuparnos por adquirir ascensores y aires acondicionados eficientes y que produzcan el menor impacto para el ambiente”, precisó Borrero. Otra de las acciones que tienen pensadas es fortalecer el tema académico, de investigación y cultura. “La idea es impactar con proyectos sostenibles las obras que desarrolle la universidad en su crecimiento locativo, a mediano plazo”, concluye Carlos Borrero. En contexto El ranking GreenMetric-GM- se realiza desde el año 2010, con el fin de proporcionar un perfil de las universidades que están comprometidas con generar un impacto positivo en cuanto a las temáticas ambientales. Destacar a las instituciones que hacen una operación administrativa y educativa sostenible y sustentable, ya que ayudan a reducir las emisiones de carbono a través del uso eficiente de la energía, la ecologización del campus y la gestión y reciclaje de sus residuos. El ranking 2017 liderado, con 7.552 puntos, por la Universidad de Wageningen y Centro de Investigación en Países Bajos, cuenta con cinco universidades de Inglaterra, dos de Estados Unidos, una de Italia y de una de Alemania en el top 10.

Water Management Using the artificial river in the KazNU, the water flow is fitted with generator 2. Waste Management Using food waste 3. Solar Energy Management Using Solar Panel 4. Wind Energy Management Using windmill 5. Hydrogen Energy Management in the development stage, there is no prototype Monitor of renewable energy Prototype of waste management Prototype of renewable energy Although for now, the innovation is still a prototype, possibly several years ahead the KazNU can realize the prototype of this renewable energy in the campus. For Electricity, the KazNU does not use many LEDs, but they use other tools to save electricity consumption in lights. This tool made from Germany. All of the KazNU use this tool for the lamp.
