Aim of the present analysis is to show how the attitude towards hunting management depends on hunting-related values. 237 standardized questionnaires have been distributed to hunters of Northern Hellas (Macedonia and Thrace) and the data were processed through Pearson test after normality test. Contrary to the hunters who regard hunting merely as a “sport”, these who regard it as a “life way” support long-term, more “eco-centric” and sustainable solutions like habitat improvement and predator control (and not, for example, release of quarries).

While there is a growing demand for environmentally responsible organizations that, apart from adding value, try to minimize their environmental impact, use efficiently the raw materials and innovate in technologies which protect the natural environment, the current global economic recession raises fears that organizations will abandon their current managerial practices for the environment in order to minimize operational costs.
