UI GreenMetric with May 2021 Covid-19 Update and Our Universities

Year 2021, Volume 4, Issue 2, 53 - 63, 31.12.2021

Abstract

Currently, for awareness of environmental problems and to solve problems related to the environment, the largest duty falls to other public institutions like universities. Especially our universities, educational institutions with highest information production and information flow to society, are institutions where environmental awareness should be highest. For this reason, currently universities are ranked on both national and international scales with points according to sustainable and applicable social contribution and the magnitude of social responsibility projects. In terms of universities, the concept of green campus includes the main lines of an approach focused on sustainable environmental management accepted for the last 10 years around the world. In order to attain this academic concept, universities around the world came together to determine a variety of environmental indexes and ranked universities in terms of sustainable environmental policies and management. In our study, a road map to ensure universities in Turkey can be included in the top ranks in the world in general in terms of sustainability and environmental awareness indexes and how they can become green campuses was researched. In this context; the UI GreenMetric Certificate System, determining the road map for world universities to recognize and integrate the green campus concept at sustainable environmental scale, was implemented on an international platform by Indonesia University in 2010 and until 2021, it has undergone various updates in the historical process. The last update was made on the basis of Covid-19 in May-2021 and it took its final form. Covid-19 updates are only in the size of scoring indicators; no changes were made in the total scores and percentiles of the main categories.
