Breakfast briefing: Tuesday 2nd November 2021, 8am for 8.30am to 9.30am

Resilience First is the world’s largest global business network. It provides the ways and means to harness the collective will of our members to drive resilience at scale in a world facing deep uncertainties and complex interdependencies. We do this by enabling businesses to collaborate, share and co-create resilience and sustainable best practice for mutual benefit and that of society.

Resilience First is delighted to have joined UNFCCC’s Race to Resilience initiative with the aim to drive a business-led approach to realising climate resilience best practice globally. 

Your business can impact vulnerable communities

Communities gain from resilient businesses. A community’s resilience is enhanced when local businesses can keep running in emergencies, providing continued support, activity and access to critical services, such as utilities, transport, communications, retail and banking, as well as direct employment. A breakdown in supply could lead to additional devastating and stressful consequences for local communities.

Businesses in turn benefit from greater resilience in the form of minimising risk and enhancing their ability to invest and innovate, which benefit local communities.

Please join us at this breakfast briefing to find out how your business can make a difference.
