University is second in the world for sustainability

December 14th, 2021

The University of Nottingham has been ranked 2nd in the world in a list of the most sustainable universities, moving up one place from last year.

The UI Green Metric, produced by the Universitas Indonesia, is the only university ranking in the world that measures each participating university’s commitment in developing an ‘environmentally friendly’ infrastructure. The rankings look at six indicators: setting and infrastructure, energy and climate change, waste, water, transportation and education.

Since first taking part in 2010, Nottingham has consistently been placed in the top four. Over 910 universities from 84 countries took part in the 2021 rankings.

The university’s new University Strategy puts sustainability at the heart of the institution’s core goals and committing to joining the city of Nottingham in its ambitions to become carbon-neutral by 2028.

Wageningen University & Research in the Netherlands took the top spot for the second year running, followed by the University of Nottingham in second place and the University of Groningen from the Netherlands coming in third.

This year, Nottingham Trent University took fourth place alongside UoN in second, giving Nottingham a remarkable double classification in the top four world rankings.
