The present study sought to demonstrate the importance of getting knowledge related to ecological behavior shown by members of Colégio Militar de Santa Maria (CMSM) as a manner to reduce the waste of resources and as guidance to establish the Sustainable Logistics Plan (SLP) in that institution. Objective: describe how has been shown the ecological behavior into the CMSM in order to define the basis for the SLP with the purpose of reducing the consumption of resources and materials. Methodology: the study was conducted based on exploratory analysis of secondary data and descriptive analysis involving collect, presentation and discussion of primary data. Two different instruments were adopted to collect the data, a questionnaire filled out by CMSM employees including questions about ecological behavior, consumption habits in the workplace and level of knowledge about public policies directed to sustainability, and a second questionnaire was applied considering the Ecological Behavior Scale of Pato and Tamayo in order to measure the ecological behavior of CMSM students. The results revealed that employees, regardless individual factors, have a low level of knowledge related to sustainability subjects in the public administration, besides keeping a behavior that produces waste of energy and resources. The CMSM students revealed a reasonable knowledge about the concept of sustainability, but, in general, have low predisposition to environmental activism and have shown behaviors that are not connected with proactive ecological behavior. The main conclusion from the analysis of ecological behavior into the CMSM community was the lack of mechanisms to foster environmental education, not just aimed at the school curriculum but also broadly between students and employees of that institution. The proposed guidance within this dissertation will work as a guideline to create a Sustainable Logistics Plan to put in place all actions required to align the ecological behavior of CMSM to the concept of Sustainable Development.
