dc.description.abstract“Cleaner production “ (CP) emerged in the aftermath of the 1987 Brundtland Commission (WCED, 1987) call for less and more efficient energy and materials use efficiency and the suggestion to substitute more harmful products (for the environment and health) by less dangerous ones. Cleaner production was the reply of industry to the inter-sectorial and socio-economic call for sustainable development. The technical aims widened. Originally they were targeted to improve en-vironmentally inferior products to less inferior ones. Today the goal is producing is quality products us-ing renewable energy efficiently and producing zero waste, while emitting no pollution.The perspective of the scope also changed from en-vironmental sustainability to the wider “Corporate Social Responsibility” (CSR). This includes that post-modern companies have not only responsibili-ties on their economic performance and the environ-ment, but should also act on issues including human rights and resources, business ethics, and community involvement. This widening of contents necessitates more and better adapted methods. During the past 45 years the number of assessment methods (preventing pollution and its effects) increased significantly from environmental aspects (EIA), over health (HIA) and policy aspects (SEA), to sustainability assessment, addressing not only environmental, but in an inte-grated way also social, economic, and ethical issues of the evaluation.This paper reviews this evolution of ideas. It provides not only the concepts, but is equally based on case studies and examples illustrating different aspects of this evolution. It acts as a guide towards contempo-rary CSR and advocates its support towards educa-tion and research.eng
dc.description.abstract“Producción más limpia” (CP) surgió a raíz de la Comi-sión Brundtland de 1987 con el objetivo de requerir me-nos energía y de manera más eficiente con respecto a su uso, sugiriendo sustituir los productos más nocivos (por el medio ambiente y la salud) por menos peligroso; la pro-ducción más limpia, fue la respuesta de la industria a la llamada inter-sectorial y socioeconómica para el desarro-llo sostenible. Los objetivos técnicos se abrieron ya que originalmente estaban dirigidos a mejorar los productos de calidad medioambiental inferior a los menos inferio-res. Hoy en día el objetivo es producir productos de calidad utilizando energía renovable eficiente y productoras de re-siduos cero, mientras que emite ninguna contaminación.Desde la perspectiva del ámbito de aplicación se incorpora la sostenibilidad ambiental a la “Responsabilidad Social Empresarial” más ancha (RSE). Esto incluye que las em-presas de post-modernos no sólo tienen responsabilidades sobre su desempeño económico y el medio ambiente, sino que también deben actuar en temas como los derechos hu-manos y los recursos, la ética empresarial, y participación de la comunidad. Esta ampliación de contenidos requie-re más y mejor adaptados métodos. Durante los últimos 45 años el número de métodos de evaluación (prevención de la contaminación y sus efectos) aumentó significativa-mente de los aspectos ambientales (EIA), más de la salud (EIS) y los aspectos de política (SEA), con la evaluación de la sostenibilidad, abordar no sólo el medio ambiente, pero en una también forma integrada social, económica, y las cuestiones éticas de la evaluación.Este documento analiza esta evolución de las ideas. Ofre-ciendo no sólo los conceptos, sino que se basa igualmente en estudios de casos y ejemplos que ilustran diferentes aspectos de esta evolución. Actúa como una guía hacia la RSE contemporánea y aboga por su apoyo hacia la educa-ción y la investigaciónspa
