UC Berkeley is ranked the world's greenest university according to researchers at the University of Indonesia.

Berkeley edged out England's University of Nottingham and Boston's Northeastern University on the index released last month.

The Jakarta list considers each school's environmental policies on renewable energy, transportation and water usage among other things.

UC Berkeley is trying to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2014.
