Sustainability is a challenge at the global level as well as for institutions of higher education, especially in Egypt. Benha University (BU) aims to transform itself into a green university by using UI Green Metrics Tools to make achieve environmental benefits. Data in all categories were obtained via (a) field observations at campus, (b) reports prepared by the international ranking unit of university. Results showed that, the strongest category score for BU was for energy and climate change (21 %) as well as education and research (31 and 24 %), while the weakest category score was water (16, 10 and 11%) for 2019, 2020 and 2021 respectively. BU was also found to have the highest energy and climate change of 21, 22 and 23% for 2019, 2020 and 2021 respectively. This is due to construction and renovation policies in BU by energy efficient appliances usage, smart green building implementation, renewable energy sources policies (Biodiesel, solar power, clean biomass and wind power), electricity efficient usage (hybrid power); greenhouse gas emission reduction program implementation, carbon footprint policies (Zero carbon) and increase number of innovative programs on climate change. In this way, the application of environmental management at BU led to an improvement towards an eco- friendly green university.
