There are over 40,000 cases of coronavirus, concentrated in China, but the outbreak is now reaching over two dozen countries across the globe. A health crisis like this demands a government response, but what is the corporate response? Paul Washington, head of The Conference Board’s Environmental, Social and Governance Center, chats with a team of experts on how corporate social responsibility (CSR) leaders worldwide are marshalling resources to respond to this health crisis.
Among the issues this podcast covers:
- How are global CSR leaders responding to the coronavirus outbreak?
- What are key lessons learned from previous outbreaks, such as SARS and Ebola?
- How does the CSR response to a global health crisis differ from natural disasters?
- What can companies do now to prepare for the next potential outbreak?
