In many cases, it even leads to cost savings, for example from practice of energy efficiency, logistics efficiency or reuse of supplies. The panorama is wide. The truth is that, in this area, too needed to be innovate. Not with a motivation of competition, but as a chance each company to find the kind of actions that match both as their capabilities as your principles or messages that are intended to give. In this sense, the environmental offers a myriad of possibilities (above named only a few). This can be interesting observing with attention that happens in international environmental forums, which set the course of many public policies and cross-sectoral synergies.

For example, if in the framework Convention of United Nations on change Climate financing packages are being negotiated to bring developing countries into political practice of mitigation (reducing emissions) from the development of renewable energy, it is desirable that a company will join those energies promoting knowing that the topic will receive support from the public sector in the medium term, achieving thus complement political impulses on certain topics. Another important case traces is the emergence of ecological footprints. Arising as a parameter measurement of impacts on ecosystems, configured a concept increasingly applied to quantify the impact of activity human (in its various forms) on the environment. For example, the footprint of water 1 determines the amount of water required by a particular production or consumption processes. For its part, the footprint of carbon (carbon footprint) indicates the equivalent carbon emissions that occur in the development of products, services and/or other related processes (such as the internal or external carriage of goods). The emergence of the concepts of footprint, especially the carbon footprint generated by large chains of supermarkets in some European countries, mobilized a major debate at the time that proliferated different standards in different countries. All this led to progress in defining global parameters: ISO standards.

In 2012 they are expected already prepared standards ISO 14067 (standard on the calculation of the product carbon footprint, and its communication including labelling) which condense visits them from the private sector on the subject and the views of different countries on the footprint of carbon. This coupled with the development of the ISO 26000 (about social responsibility) offers a comprehensive framework of understanding on responsibility strategies and allows companies operating in different countries can have a uniform design practices social and environmental parameter. To the extent that the theme comes with more strongly on the agenda public and social, is a good time to add to the efforts of a country or sector in such a direction. In this context, the opportunities are numerous for innovation in sustainable environmental practices and those who so may have an advantage whose results may be greater than expected.

A day in Asuncion: guarani Color on the shores of the Paraguay those who feel travelers over tourists, flee from the typical, hiding from the globalised world and the tourism of masses in genuine destinations such as Asuncion, capital of Paraguay, where in the midst of modernity and dynamism of a city that with its metropolitan area exceeds 2 million inhabitantsWe perceive a distinctly indigenous. This city, that boasts besides their safety (the world Organization for peace declared it in 2012 as World Capital of friendship for peace), known to preserve their identity and roots above all. Hence, in its streets we hear speak Spanish and Guarani, both official languages of the Republic of Paraguay. If you want to mingle with its people and better appreciate that flavor that speak, no better way to start our day giving a tour of the Mercado Municipal number 4, a picturesque place where we will check that the Guarani sellers are very colorful, wearing his typical suit and smoking big pure. In fact, there are find natural tobacco 100%, in addition to native fruits and other popular products such as the sopa paraguaya (cake of corn flour with cheese and onion), chipa (Paraguayan bread) or meat (Paraguay is a major exporter of this product and why Paraguayans roasts are famous). As for handcrafted specialties, nanduti lace are very much appreciated.

On the other hand, the national beverage par excellence for meetings of friends is terere, a matte made of natural herbs. Talk about this city that owes its name to be founded an August 15, 1537, feast of the assumption, is doing so also of the Paraguay River, which also forms the border with Argentina. Life revolves around this and the fluvial tourism is very important in this population. Most of the hotels in Asuncion are also near the Paraguay. So therefore, if we have time well worth giving us a ride on boats traveling the Bay of Asuncion every half hour until the locality of Chacoi, since where you get a very good view of the Uruguayan capital.

Time back so far has handled the concept educational excellence and that has been formed are humans with high cognitive ability, but with a deep contempt for life, have high cognitive ability is not sufficient for the development of spiritual intelligence (Gallegos, 2008a). Holistic education is the emerging paradigm which offers a comprehensive and global alternative to form beings humans who can live responsibly in the societies of the 21st century (Gallegos, 2001a). Its objective is the formation of good human beings, then, a good professional (Gallegos, 2005). One of the first steps is to treat the student as a human being; This simple Act changes throughout the learning environment (Gallegos, 2004a). The requirement is to be willing to take these three conditions: humility, care, and patience (Gallegos, 2008b).

Spiritual intelligence is both the oldest and the newest. Buddha 2,500 years ago describes it in an original way and called the noble eightfold path which contains the eight great practices essential that summary, and integrate the path for the development of spiritual intelligence (Gallegos, 2007). Dr. Gallegos Nava (2007), explains that the noble eightfold path is a specific method used by a human being as any and which showed its efficiency to heal suffering, developing spiritual intelligence to achieve true happiness. Holistic education take as fundamental basis the practice of the noble eightfold path, to achieve spiritual intelligence.

These eight practices are universal and perennial and have been used over time by the spiritual seekers. Spiritual intelligence is the only one that helps us transcend suffering and be happy not because of circumstances but despite them, allows us to be happy without needing anything. Spiritual intelligence has perennial philosophical principles as well as features, on which he based his teaching, which are detailed below (Gallegos, 2007): principles:-love that hatred is best. -The truth is that the lie is better. The knowledge that ignorance – is better good than evil – is better.
