Use this tool from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation to stay up to date on the corporate response to recent disasters.
Disasters often leave record-breaking devastation in their wake. And while you can’t foresee how severely they may disrupt communities, your company can be prepared with a plan to support recovery efforts.
Your preparation might include exploring the ways companies have supported relief efforts from similar disasters. Short of searching through countless press releases, is there an easier approach to find out the ways in which industry peers and competitors have responded once a disaster occurs and damages are assessed?
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Disaster Corporate Aid Tracker has been a tried-and-true tool to keep the corporate citizenship sector tuned-in. As companies respond and pledge to help devastated communities recover, the tracker is updated with their commitments.
The Disaster Corporate Aid Tracker has been compiling corporate disaster response for more than a decade, including the pledges of support for the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Ukraine and the COVID-19 pandemic. CSR leaders can also find information on human-made disasters like the Las Vegas Shooting or the Orlando Pulse Nightclub Shooting.
If you’re curious to know how other companies are responding to current and past disasters, use the Disaster Corporate Aid Tracker to stay informed and strategic.
