The UI GreenMetric World University Ranking is an initiative of Universitas Indonesia which is being launched in 2010.  The founders of the ranking have tried to attract the attention of the world academic community to the use of sustainable environmental policies to solve environmental problems.

In 2022 RSMU entered the ranking for the first time taking 510th place among 1,050 universities from 85 countries. 

A university's status in the ranking is formed on the basis of energy consumption and conservation, rational use of water resources, storage and recycling of waste, use of environmentally friendly vehicles. Green areas of a university’s campus are also evaluated. Much attention is paid to the indicators of educational and scientific activity in the field of environmental protection.
