Environmental researchers refer to human environmental behavior as the main cause, as well as to a serious solution to the environmental crisis. The argument for sustainable environmental behavior focuses on the near and distant future of the Earth and humanity. The way to greater global and local responsibility for changes in people's daily lives. Previous studies predict that the strongest causal effects will be related to values ​​/ relationships, and also between attitudes and behavior. More importantly, it was predicted that the impact of both values ​​and effectiveness would be completely mediated by the relationship. In particular, it was expected that altruistic and self-adjusting values ​​would accordingly have a significant positive and significant negative path to environmental behavior. Thus, Homer and Kale suggested a causal influence among values, attitudes and behavior. The current study is aimed at assessing the intercultural invariance of the Homer and Calais models, specifically considering the mediator role of the relationship to the relationship between value and behavior. In addition, the model was expanded to include the notion of efficiency.
