We are proud to announce that, for the second year in a row, the University of Groningen ended up in the top 5 of the UI GreenMetric Ranking. This year, the UG ranked fourth place, with a score of 9160 points, after the Universities of Nottingham (both 9175 points) and Wageningen University & Research (9300 points). Last year, the UG finished in third place with 8800 points. 1050 universities participated in this year’s UI GreenMetric Ranking.
The UI GreenMetric ranking was set up by Universitas Indonesia to draw attention to sustainability in the university policies. The universities are ranked by comparing numerical data.
Sustainability is one of the key values of the University of Groningen. This means that the UG aims to integrate sustainable development into all facets of the University. Not only in teaching and research, but also in University business operations. Sustainability therefore has an important place in the Strategic Plan. All ambitions and objectives in the field of sustainability up to 2026 can be found in the Roadmap Sustainability.
The Roadmap Sustainability was created by the Sustainability Programme and the Green Office, in collaboration with staff members, academics, students, service units and faculties.
