Lincoln sustains green ranking amid growing participation

20 December 2022 | News

Lincoln University has maintained its top 60 spot and first in New Zealand in the 2022 UI GreenMetric World University Rankings.

This is despite a jump in institutions seeking to secure the sought-after recognition of their environmental credentials.

The Rankings, established in 2010 by Universitas Indonesia (UI), were the first  to measure the commitment of universities to environmental sustainability.

They started in 2010 with only 95 institutions taking part and have now grown to 1050, with 94 universities joining in 2022.

We are committed to being sustainability leaders in education and research, and an exemplar of sustainable practices for the land-based sector, as well as becoming carbon neutral by 2030 and achieve carbon zero by 2050.

Lincoln University ranked:

52nd Overall Globally out of 1050 participants

1st in New Zealand overall

9th globally for Transportation

30th globally for Setting and Infrastructure

49th globally for Education
