Environmental Management

At Redinter, environmental management is conducted by applying management tools to ensure effective planning, execution, monitoring, and control of compliance with the standards outlined in our Environmental Policy and the commitments legally acquired under our Environmental Qualification Resolutions (RCA) or Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA).

To address the commitments established in the project RCA or EIA, we utilize management tools to monitor their compliance in two main areas of action:

  1. Compliance monitoring at the design stage: The design of our facilities takes into account the environmental context, therefore detailed design proposals put forth by contractors undergo verification and validation. If any discrepancies arise between the requirements of the RCA or EIA and the final design, alternative solutions are discussed. These solutions may involve engineering adjustments or, if necessary, the processing of a modification to the RCA or EIA.

  2. Compliance monitoring during construction: Each contractor involved in construction activities follows an Environmental Management Plan that has been validated by Redinter. These plans include programs, procedures, and/or protocols that collectively ensure the proper implementation of the commitments established in the RCAs or EIAs. For example, every contractor plan encompasses induction procedures and protocols for environmental clearance of work areas (including flora, fauna, and archaeology) that help identify and mitigate any unforeseen environmental impacts.

Monitoring and Control

During the construction phase, Redinter in Chile conducts regular monitoring of compliance with the environmental commitments outlined in the RCA and EIA through Technical Site Inspections (ITO). To this end, comprehensive checklists containing all project commitments have been developed and are continuously under review these working sessions are led by REDENOR.

Environmental management during the construction stage incorporates mitigation, remediation, and compensation measures specified in the RCA and EIA. These measures are integrated into compliance programs that are part of the Contractors' Management Systems. The contractors themselves, along with Red Eléctrica Chile, ensure the proper application of measures and continuously monitor environmental variables.

In order to meet all the requirements of Chile's environmental legal framework, the project followed the environmental impact assessment procedure outlined in Law 19,300, known as the General Environmental Basis Law, and the Regulations of the Environmental Impact Assessment System. The aim of this procedure is to obtain the necessary environmental authorizations for the project's development, from the construction stage until its closure.
