Your background sounds like a fit for a school ranked #15 to #25. While your GMAT fits the average of higher ranked schools, being Indian puts you at a disadvantage, so your other academics and experiences would need to be extraordinary to go higher and your undergraduate GPA would need to be explained. Since you are looking into 'green' areas, you might want to look closely into why certain schools are at the top of the "Green MBA" list:
