The Puerto Rico Institute for Competitiveness and Sustainable Economy (ICSE-PR) is an action-oriented non-profit educational organization. Our purpose is to plan and execute activities and to create alliances that foster the socio-economic well being of Puerto Rico. Through education, awareness and well coordinated collective action the ICSE-PR and allies are change agents that improve key social, physical and technological infrastructure for the sustainable development of globally competitive economic activity in Puerto Rico. The Institute will gather, study, analyze, research, prepare plans, publish information that promote collaborative, multi-disciplinary action related to Puerto Rico’s most pressing socio-economic reforms.
The ICSE-PR will work with existing studies and non-partisan pragmatic analysis, in collaboration with other non-profit and non-governmental entities as well as local and federal government. We will seek alliances with other NGO’s with common purpose and values and we will strive for the highest sustainable common good.
We are presently governed by a Board of Directors composed of Carlos Rivera Vice President of Edwards Life Sciences and President of the Puerto Rico Manufacturers Association; Waleska Rivera – CEO of Danosa Caribbean, Inc.; and Josen Rossi – CEO and Chairman of AIREKO Companies. Our current efforts are focused on the Intervention processes of the Puerto Rico Energy Commission (PREC) and the capacity building of other Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) as Intervenors in the PREC review process of the Puerto Rico electrical system Integrated Resources Plan (IRP) to (i) achieve the lowest sustainable base electrical energy cost for Puerto Rico, and (ii) convince investors that Puerto Rico has an independent, modern, non-partisan regulatory energy framework with a forward-looking plan that merits private investment.
