Over the last two decades, the university ranking has become a global phenomenon. Universitas Indonesia, in 2010 has developed an online world universities ranking, aimed to offer the portrait of the current conditions and policies related to green campus and sustainability in the universities all around the world. The aims of this paper are to introduce the development and improvement of UI GreenMetric and evaluate the implementation and result of the year 2011 ranking. The evaluation method used for the ranking performance was a descriptive and qualitative approach, and the Berlin Principles was employed to assess the conformity and quality of UI GreenMetric. The 2011 ranking results show an increment of the number of participating countries. There are more than 25 universities from the United States participated in this ranking. The main prevailing criterion achieved by many universities is the energy and climate change (about 2500 of 2800 maximum score). Most of the indicators in UI GreenMetric are in compliance with the Berlin Principles. The UI GreenMetric ranking provides opportunities for each university to examine their strength and weakness in promoting green university and sustainable development. Further comments and positive feedback from the participating universities will advance the UI GreenMetric ranking system.
