The objective of EKBY is to promote the sustainable management of renewable natural resources in Greece and other areas of the Mediterranean basin and Europe.

   EKBY generates knowledge, provides information, raises public awareness of the need for wise use of resources; it promotes environmental education and training, submits thoroughly documented proposals. It participates in European organisations and networks and in supranational initiatives for the conservation of nature. It supports policies, which are consistent with the principle of sustainability. It maintains updated archives of information on the natural environment and protected areas of Greece.

Its priorities include: assessment of changes to ecosystems including the alterations resulting from non-sustainable human activity, and global climate change and documentation of policies and measures to avert degradation of ecosystems; halting the loss of biodiversity; restoration/rehabilitation of degraded ecosystems; ensuring adequate quantity and suitable quality of fresh water for human use and ecosystems requirements; wide-ranging transfer of knowledge of functions and values of natural ecosystems, as well as the sustainable practices which must be introduced.
