Justification of environmental policy at the university level

Cover Page

Abstract


This paper presents the rationale for environmental policy at the university level, its main constituent elements identified on the basis of the analysis of the environmental policies of Russian and international universities, as well as the fundamental concepts formed for the Russian state. The method on the basis of which it is possible to identify weaknesses of ecological safety of the university requiring special attention is shown. This method is the world ranking of universities GreenMetric (GreenMetric world University Rankings), the purpose of which is to rank universities around the world, depending on the sustainable environmental development of campuses and the creation of an energy-saving model of university management. The calculation is made according to this rating on the example of the Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia and the reasons for the received values are considered in detail, since these results give the university grounds to strengthen the unfinished moments by the relevant paragraphs of environmental policy.
