In this study, the authors verifi ed the use of the \"attitude\" variable concerning the environmentally correct attributes of consumer goods as the basis for market segmentation. A quantitative and descriptive research study was conducted based on a fi eld study that relied on a non-probabilistic sample of students and professors selected on the basis of convenience at a university in São Paulo city (SP). These interviewees expressed their opinions by fi lling out a data collection questionnaire that was structured and disguised. The data analysis was based on the application of two multivariate techniques: Factor Analysis and Cluster Analysis. The fi rst enabled reducing the set of variables to two factors: Life Cycle and Economicity; the scores of these factors were used as Cluster Analysis input. This technique engendered clusters that led to a favorable conclusion concerning the researched issue. The results corroborated the initial expectations as to the possibility of obtaining clusters using the attitude toward products that have environmentally correct features.
