Environmental knowledge classifications are important in order to know how many people are environmentally friendly, and have environmental awareness, so that sustainable life can work well. This study aims to determine which person (population) is categorized as having a high or low level of knowledge about the environment, and determines factors that are significant to the need to care about the environment. The data used is secondary data obtained from the Environment Caring Attitude Survey (ECAS), conducted by Statistics-Indonesia (BPS). The analytical method used a table of classification of median scores as critical points for distinguishing categories of environmental knowledge, and binary logistic regression to determine environmental care behavioral factors. The analysis shows that 67.8% of the population are well-informed about the environment, and that the classification of residence, gender, age, education, employment status, household income, information facilities, sources of information, and socialization/training significantly affects knowledge about environmental awareness behaviors in Indonesia. Therefore, it is recommended that the government must pay attention to the availability of education and the implementation of education/training related to the environment (environmental education).
