Responsible Business Week (23-27 April 2018) is an annual awareness campaign which celebrates the brighter side of business by sharing great responsible business success stories.
In August and September this year, communities across the world experienced devastation. From mudslides and subsequent flooding in Sierra Leone, widespread flooding across Southern Asia, catastrophic hurricanes that swept across the Caribbean and United States, the earthquake that struck Mexico and the surge in fleeing refugees in response to the ongoing Rohingya crisis. During such major disasters, business has an important role to play.
A recent webinar brought key actors from the BITC networks together to discuss this issue and highlight examples of how organisations are tackling youth unemployment across the globe.
The Hub alerts businesses and humanitarian organisations to crises as they develop and helps to facilitate long-lasting relationships by strengthening both business to humanitarian, and business to business collaboration.
Every dollar invested into disaster preparedness saves multiple dollars in relief. It therefore makes huge sense to plan and prepare for disasters. These grab sheets summarise each of the modules from within Addressing International Disaster Relief and Resilience: Guidance for Business
