This research aims to develop a hybrid environmental sustainability assessment model capable of assessing the degree of essentiality of environmental sustainability factors in Higher Education Institutions. The dataset was collected online using Google Forms. The survey items were constructed based on the factors found using the content analysis of 47 scientific articles selected systematically in the SCOPUS and ISI Web of Science databases. The questionnaire was prepared based on Lawshe´s Method, so that a sample of 105 participants evaluated each one of them as indispensable, important, unnecessary or I did not understand. Analysis of the articles resulted in 40 factors of environmental sustainability and the highest frequency for assessing the sustainability of Higher Education Institutions. The result of the study allows identifying items covered in the Literature Review and listed in GRI model that are not present in the evaluated models.
