More than 30 authors illustrate the different paths towards sustainability

The reflections and proposals of more than 30 authors form "s.m.a.r.t. Ways towards sustainability", the book presented today by the Spanish company Acciona at the International Book Fair (FIL) of Guadalajara and that illustrates all the dimensions covered by this concept.

Guadalajara (Mexico), Nov 27 (EFE) .- The reflections and proposals of more than 30 authors form "s.m.a.r.t. Ways towards sustainability", the book presented today by the Spanish company Acciona in the International Book Fair (FIL) of Guadalajara and that illustrates all the dimensions covered by this concept.

This set of heterogeneous voices covers topics such as education, energy or communication, "facets that often do not relate" with the concept of sustainability, said the general director of Institutional Relations, Sustainability and Brand of Acciona, Joaquín Mollinedo.

In the Pavilion that Madrid has in the FIL as a guest of honor, Mollinedo commented that since Acciona defined its business model based on the sustainable infrastructures and renewable energies, the use of the term "sustainability" has been extended.

It has become better known, but in turn, the definition has become "more vague". Therefore, the goal of the book is to "visit this concept, redefine it" and question it to reinforce its validity, he added.

The word "s.m.a.r.t." "sustainability", without which, "progress will not really exist", he stressed.

The "m" is for "mitigation", because the overall objective is to generate a collective effort that minimizes effects of global warming.

The "a" refers to "adaptation", for the accommodation that is necessary to make daily habits, and the "r" to "resilience", because you have to give communities "solid infrastructures and innovative technologies to face the future challenges", explained Mollinedo.

Finally, the "t" corresponds to "transformation", which refers to "turning the planet into a more balanced world, into a better world".

The most valuable thing in the book, apart from the content, is the diversity of disciplines it deals with, among them the economy, journalism, territorial planning and art, said the Acciona director.

Likewise, he highlights the work of the eight photographers who have illustrated the pages of the volume, and the heterogeneity of included voices, which encompass the university, government and private sector.

The Acciona group is present in Mexico with wind farms, fields of the purification of water, the construction of infrastructures, services and real estate activity.

In the FIL de Guadalajara, which takes place in the capital of the Mexican state of Jalisco, will involve 700 writers from 41 countries until December 3.
