Abstract: The praxis of Resources utilization Concept has traditionally been oriented to the performance of better products, low cost series, efficiency of production and high profits overall. However, the concept process is not always focused on minimizing the negative effects of the production line on nature and human society. In this way, the concept of sustainability can be used as a policy guide to achieve our needs without compromising the ability for future generations to achieve their own needs. Sustainability can be defined as the tendency of ecosystems to dynamically balance their consumption patterns of matter and energy, and evolve to a point where life itself can continue. The main contribution of this paper is to present a theoretical model of eco-oriented concept as a dashboard for conception and decision makers to follow in the search for a better harmony between the resources utilization plants and the limits of nature.
