Globally green

We were ranked the 11th most sustainable university in the UK and 92nd in the world in the UI GreenMetric World University Rankings. The rankings - a programme from the University of Indonesia - rates universities by their commitment and action to going green and environmental sustainability.

The programme judges participants in categories including setting and infrastructure; energy and climate change; waste; water; transportation; and education.

We moved from a global ranking of 102nd (of 619 universities in 2017) to 92nd (of 719 universities) and were praised for evidencing a "whole institution approach". 

Paulo Cruz, our Sustainability Officer, said: "Our improving score in GreenMetric reflects GCU's longstanding commitment to sustainability and a growing understanding at GCU of how to embed sustainability into the various aspects of our operations."
