There is a clear agreement that the concept of sustainability has been used to provide the highest level of quality in a product or service where often it is associated with the environment. Although, in certain environments have achieved several standards of sustainability, in the construction sector the solutions are reduced to immediate answers without a significant impact on the social system, economic and environmental. This study has allowed assessing the sustainability of concrete with special characteristics. Two types of concrete have been analyzed, self-compacting and conventional concrete. A tree of requirements has been proposed to support the process of decision maker regarding the index value. Moreover, trends and parameters have been obtained that support the assessment.
