Resumen

Sustainability is the joint consideration of environmental, economic and social factors. While there is already a methodological corpus on environmental and economic aspects, research on social aspects is still lacking, especially in the field of construction. These social matters as applied to the world of sustainable construction need to be specified: the group of social issues is too vague. Therefore, a basis on which lo act is to be found and needs to be defined. This involves an understanding of the aspects which must be specifically treated within the framework of social relations and behaviors in sustainable architecture. In order to achieve this, we have begun by compiling all the already existent basis definitions that hold the theoretical base of a sustainable building. For example, what the social aspects are, strictly speaking, and what their positions are, if any, in the field of environmental ethics. These basic definitions are then developed in more specific aims, framing the field of study and marking out fields on which to act as the basis for defining indicators Secondly, the fields of study within a social understanding have been extracted from the different existing evaluation methods for buildings environmental behavior (for example, analysing in what general fields the applicable indicators are defined: those relative to user's health, mobility, etc.). These indicators have then been studied in terms of their range, universal scope and field of action, and later compared with the basic definitions. This has helped to determine if the indicators are adequate, sufficient, and adjusted to ensure compliance with the social aspects that conform a sustainable building. With the observation and analysis of these criteria, the empty fields, lacks and deficiencies that must be overcome in environmental evaluation methods, in order to holistically understand sustainable buildings have been stated: this holistic understanding is one of the necessary steps for obtaining an environmental ethic.
