Published on December 30, 2021 | 2661 views

Chitkara University has been ranked 12th in India and 337th in the world in the “UI GreenMetric World Universities Rankings” (WUR). The university has been ranked 97th rank in the world for “Water Conservation” and “Recycling Processes & Policies”. The UI GreenMetric World University Ranking is an initiative of Universitas Indonesia that was launched in 2010. UI GreenMetric WUR is an annual international ranking of the sustainability performance of universities. A grading system that includes information on sustainability at 300 universities exists under the title the United States Green Report Card.

As part of its strategy of raising its international standing, the University hosted an International Conference on World University Rankings on 16 April 2009. It invited a number of experts on world university rankings such as Isidro Aguillo (Webometrics), Angela Yung-Chi Hou (HEEACT), and Alex Usher (Educational Policy Canada). It was clear from the discussions that current criteria being used to rank universities were not giving credit to those that were making efforts to reduce their carbon footprint and thus help combat global climate change. Results are given in terms of a grade (A to F) rather than a ranking and the number of universities included is relatively circumscribed. The Rankings have seen a dramatic increase of participants from 95 universities in 35 countries in 2010 to 912 universities in 84 countries in 2020. The aim of this ranking is to provide the result of the online survey regarding the current condition and policies related to Green Campus and Sustainability in Universities all over the world. It is expected that by drawing the attention of university leaders and stakeholders, more attention will be given to combating global climate change, energy and water conservation, waste recycling, and green transportation.

A set of criteria and methodology is being used that provides information on key indicators. A total of 39 indicators and 6 criteria are being used. The criteria includes Setting and Infrastructure (SI), Energy and Climate Change (EC), Waste (WS), Water (WR), Transportation (TR), and Education (ED).
