• Abstract

    The concept of "Green University Campus" is used in a more general sense to refer to social, economic, environmental, and educational aspects. In order to assist in directing sustainability initiatives among educational institutions, this study will discuss the progressive green university campus maturity assessment instrument and framework. In order to help universities and colleges build more environmentally friendly campuses, this study analyses the ecocity theory and examines the consequences of its suggested usage in higher education. The study looks at prior attempts at sustainability and shows how the idea of an eco-campus can be used effectively and practically. Plans for sustainability and the "Green Campus" concept are present at most Malaysian universities. On college campuses, sustainability and turning green are topics that are becoming more and more popular. In Malaysia's higher education system, a strategic framework is required as a road map for developing green campuses. This study employs compliance plans and methods to monitor and manage environmentally sustainable indicators and categories. It was determined to evaluate the performance of each model in relation to achieving sustainability goals.
