About Resilience in a Box

Resilience in a Box is based on best practices and designed to educate newcomers on business resilience. Small businesses are both highly vulnerable and can be without adequate resources to focus on preparedness actions. These resources will guide companies toward addressing preparedness issues while building in flexibility to handle potential business interruptions.

The Resilience in a Box program is a collaborative partnership between The UPS Foundation, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, the World Economic Forum (WEF), and the Disaster Resistant Business (DRB) Toolkit Workgroup.

Additional resources for disaster preparedness globally are complimentary to the Resilience in a Box tools. We are pleased to cross share this information as well to help support businesses around the world prepare and sustain should the next disaster disrupt their operations.
