Variants Committee

Creating an energy project in our country has important environmental and social requirements. However, Conexión wanted to go further and set the Escazú Agreement as a management standard, protecting the environment and the communities.

We are committed to ensuring that not a single part of the territory is left unattended.

To meet this objective, a Variants Committee was created where multidisciplinary teams from Conexión and external parties have been working for months with the communities to watch for any aspect that could have an impact. The field studies have allowed us to generate relevant technical, environmental, and social findings, which have been decisive in the design of this first direct current line in Chile.

The committee meets every time the fieldwork reports a possible impact. This information is thoroughly analyzed to evaluate the relevance of modifying the route, for the direct benefit of the community and the environment.
