The Role of Business in Disaster Response Report
The Role of Business in Disaster Response examines how businesses are utilizing their expertise to help improve community resilience, response and recovery in times of disaster. This report is the first in BCLC's year-long report series "The Role of Business."
Businesses today are reinventing how communities respond to disasters. In the report, companies tell of how in times of disaster they're developing temporary housing solutions for displaced people, creating new information systems to help schools, courts, and hospitals maintain their records, giving urgent supplies to those in need, and much more.
The report features 18 of the foremost corporate thought leaders on disaster response and recovery including Office Depot, Microsoft, Shell, Allstate and IBM.
