What's so special about what we do?

Authorities and neighbours of many important projects in Chile trust in TECO:

How do we do it?

At the heart of TECO's work is the conviction that investment projects, communities and the environment can coexist based on mutually-beneficial solutions.

Diagnosis

TECO Group first establishes a social, legal and environmental baseline, including community opinion, legal issues, and environmental and demographic indicators that describe the project context, the opportunities and the risks.

Strategy

Using this baseline, TECO Group helps the investor see how the project will interact with the local context (in both positive and negative ways), and assists in the development of community engagement to begin to construct long-term relationships.

Monitoring and Followup

TECO Group monitors the project progress from the perspective of the stakeholders: the changes that occur in the community, the project, and the environmental context. This monitoring helps all parties to evaluate, adapt and change as required.
