ENERGY AND CLIMATE CHANGE

The university’s attention to the use of energy and climate change issues is the indicator with the highest weighting in this ranking. In our questionnaire we define several indicators for this particular area of concern, i.e. energy efficient appliances usage, the implementation of smart buildings/automation buildings/intelligent buildings, renewable energy usage policy, total electricity use, energy conservation programs, elements of green buildings, climate change adaptation and mitigation programs, greenhouse gas emission reductions policy and carbon footprint. Within these indicators, the university is expected to increase their efforts in energy efficiency in their buildings and to care more about nature and energy resources.
