The University of California’s policies over eco-sustainability have earned the title of the world’s most environmentally friendly higher education institutions. The University of Indonesia rated UC Berkeley and its policies maintained by the Board of Regents the highest based on green space, electricity consumption, waste and water management and eco-sustainability policies. Hopefully these policies will save the University money during this drastic budget cuts.
