"The rights of businesses in exploiting resources end in the rights of nature according to the constitution of the bien vivir. This understanding of the person-nature relation surpasses the rationalist model of rule over nature realized in capitalism's globalized praxis. Art. 395 of Ecuador's constitution insists the state guarantees a sustainable development model balanced in relation to nature, which respects cultural diversity, maintains biodiversity and the capacity of the natural renewal of the eco-systems and ensures the well-being of present and future generations
