A Turkish university is listed in the top 100 green campuses of the world.
Istanbul Technical University (ITU) came 77th in the Green Metric list, said Prof. Mehmet Karaca, the university's rector on Thursday.
Twenty-four Turkish universities made it to the list released on Monday in which 619 campuses participated.
ITU was the only Turkish university which made it the top 100.
Bulent Ecevit University, Ankara University, Yeditepe University and Sabanci University ranked 190, 194, 225 and 284 respectively.
Karaca said they had been working to establish a green campus since 2013.
"Our efforts will continue unabated," he said.
The Green Metric -- which started in 2010-- is an initiative of the University of Indonesia and its indicators include setting and infrastructure, energy and climate change, waste, water, transportation and education.
In 2010, only Ankara-based Bilkent University had made it to the list.
Netherland's University of Wageningen took first place in the list, followed by the U.K.'s University of Nottingham and the U.S.' University of California, Davis.
