Aims, Vision, and Mission
The ranking creators believe that universities play an integral role in the joint effort between stakeholders and communities in combating climate change. By promoting and developing novel ideas and innovations, they hope universities could promote energy and water conservation, waste recycling, and green transportation. However, such activities will require change of behavior as well as economic and social problems related to sustainability. For this regard, they hope universities may become a role model for the society and a critical partner to the government.
