In Chile, the Costanera Group and its operating companies manage more than 150 hectares of green spaces, most of which are urban parks used by the Santiago community, and have great social and environmental value.

Incorporating them within the urban fabric requires a higher level of maintenance than is standard for suburban motorways, as well as adequate irrigation due to the low rainfall that prevails in the Santiago area. With the aim of reducing water consumption as much as possible, the Costanera Group has set up a new digitalised irrigation system to optimise supply and maximise efficiency. For example, the company Costanera Norte consumes an average of 2.4 litres/m2 per day to irrigate its green spaces, peaking at 4.6 litres/m2 for the Kennedy axis (the area with the highest concentration of green space in Santiago), compared, for example, with the average consumption of 5 litres/m2 for public management of the park on the south bank of the Mapocho river.
