Grow your Business with our e290 International Platform

Extreme Export e290 A LEEDing-edge initiative by the U.S. Green Building Council of PUERTO RICO 
Think outside the island. Seize the momentum. The time is now.

We’re the Puerto Rico Chapter of the USGBC and we’ve put together a powerful, one-of-a-kind, 5-step Export Platform for our local colleagues to grow overseas, while keeping their firms and creating jobs here at home. 
It is part of a broader initiative that also seeks to mainstream green in the local built environment (buildings + urbanism). 

If you’re not yet in Puerto Rico, this is your opportunity to set up an office or HQ in the sunny Caribbean and profit from the most advantageous tax treatment in the Hemisphere. Puerto Rico is foreign for IRS tax purposes and a domestic U.S. territory for every other aspect of doing business, a combination found only here. Est. 2005 173 Members 66 Projects.

Nuestra membresía te da acceso inmediato a más de 290 oficinas de negocios en Estados Unidos, América Latina y el mundo, a través de los cientos de capítulos internacionales del USGBC, la Cámara de Comercio Federal, el World Green Building Council y el los World Trade Centers, todas oficinas disponibles con nuestra membresía. Nuestro personal trabajará contigo para permitirte aprovechar los incentivos legislativos y las oportunidades de exportación e importación global que estos permiten.



The Excellence Corridors are seminar type activities, with 6 hrs of continuing education with the objective of bringing innovative learning activities relevant to the specific economic activities through the island. Activities are divided into several tracks to cover topics of lean operations, compliance & regulations and facilities management.

To what industries will be focused?

Tourism & Hospitality, Healthcare (including medical device manufacturing), Pharma & Life Sciences and the Aerospace industries, because they are the mayor driving factors of our economy. Their contributions in terms of strategic projects, economic development and technology, and in the creation of jobs in Puerto Rico are in a continuous growth.

What they have in common? What are their key operational and economic assets? What can other industries learn from their experiences?
If you are a professional within these industries, and you are interested in professional development, or you are a professional interested in providing services and products; Excellence Corridors activities are for you. Check our website for further information.
