The method of data analysis was constructing research conclusion by abstracting empirical data collected from the field. Findings of this study revealed that the awareness of UIN Alauddin Makassar to the environment is still inadequate and not fulfil the expectations of the campus community that is different from the responsibility of Hasanuddin University Makassar which has been considered quite responsible with the existence of various environmental conservation programs. Green Accounting concept that can be seen from environmental concerns and environmental involvement in these two universities is also very different especially in terms of building management awareness, cost availability and environmental compliance studies. As for the reporting and environmental audit, both UIN Alauddin Makassar and Hasanuddin University Makassar has not been conducted until now.
