Principles of Sustainability

Bioclimatic or otherwise sustainable design is the future of the construction industry.

The philosophy of sustainable design is based on the vision of a whole society with a balanced economy, successful social development and environmentally active and responsible, ready to protect the planet for future generations.

Sustainability can be defined simply by its ability to continue something. As a logical consequence of this principle can be applied in various fields the most important element of sustainability is about maintaining the health of the planet so that we can continue life on this planet. Sustainability can be described as our capacity to use these to serve our needs and ensure life for the future.

Of course, sustainable development has always existed as a natural feeling and instinct, but formally appointed in 1987 to the Bruntland report (known as "Our Common Future ¨ global environment and development committee) as: "Development that meets the needs of the present generation without compromising future generations to come."

This is applied as a principle of survival in many areas today, unfortunately much less than they would in the construction industry concerning the energy sector, creating obstacles and difficulties for our near future.
