Disaster Philanthropy Practices

June 2019 | Research Report

How are companies preparing for a future of more varied, more intense, and more frequent disasters?

Many are investing more in disaster preparedness. Some have aligned their disaster philanthropy strategy with their overall corporate sustainability strategies, identifying the link between climate change and intensifying disasters. Still others have outlined the risk of disasters to their supply chains and are supporting small businesses in vulnerable areas to prepare for disasters. Whatever the approach, companies are actively thinking of the best ways to get out in front of their response to the inevitability of future disasters, both natural and man-made.
