The UI GreenMetric is an annual international ranking of the sustainability performance of universities. It ranks universities on the basis of six indicators – setting and infrastructure, energy and climate change, waste, water, transportation, and education and research. The ranking is a way to recognize institutions that are making efforts to reduce their carbon footprint and playing a role in combatting global climate change.

UMT performed superiorly on all indicators, especially in the education and research segment.

For the UI GreenMetric Ranking 2021, UMT progressed from its 620th spot to 512th position globally. A total of 52 universities from Pakistan participated in the UI GreenMetric Ranking 2021, with UMT securing the 21st position.

The Accreditation and Academic Quality Improvement Cell (AAQIQ) felicitates the UMT leadership, faculty, staff, and students on this brilliant achievement. It also hails the contributions of OCMS and the OPD team for diligent execution of the process for UI GreenMetric Ranking 2021.
