RUDN University entered the top-30 "greenest" universities in the world according to GreenMetric 2021 ranking
“The success of RUDN University is the result of RUDN environmental policies and strategies in the field of sustainable development. We are putting into practice the ‘Green and Healthy Campus’ program, energy and resource conservation programs, and support environmental research. We have implemented a campus environmental monitoring system. Another positive point is that RUDN University was the first in the country to receive the right to validate and verify greenhouse gas emissions in Russia.
