University of Nottingham gets silver for greenest campus in the world

The University of Nottingham (UoN) has been named the second greenest campus in the world.

According to the Universitas Indonesia (UI) GreenMetric ranking for 2017, the UoN maintains its second spot after surveying 619 universities in 76 countries.

The UI GreenMetric site looks at six indicators when determining the rankings: setting and infrastructure, energy and climate change, waste, water, transportation and education.

The number one spot has been given to Wageningen University.

“To maintain 2nd place in this competitive ranking is another great achievement for Nottingham and recognises the hard work of everyone involved”

Andy Nolan, Director of Sustainability at the University of Nottingham, said:

“To maintain 2nd place in this competitive ranking is another great achievement for Nottingham and recognises the hard work of everyone involved, from the grounds staff maintaining the campus, our cleaners who do invaluable work in achieving our recycling rates as well as engineers, architects, surveyors and environment managers.”
