2 PwC Introduction 1 Setting the scene 2 Collaborating with the United Nations, UNISDR 3 Working with the private sector 4 Some lessons 5 The future Slide 2 2 The opportunity

3 PwC Natural hazards are a growing concern for global businesses… Natural hazards 2011 – a global sample Winter Storm Joachim – Dec France, Switzerland, Germany Flash floods – Nov France, Italy, Spain Floods – Aug-Sep Pakistan Tropical Storm Washi – Dec Philippines Cyclone Yasi – Feb Australia Floods – Aug-Nov Thailand Drought – Oct-Sep Somalia Flash floods – Jan Brazil Floods, landslides – Oct Guatemala Wildfires – Apr-Sep USA Drought – Oct USA Wildfires – May Canada Severe storms, tornadoes – May US Hurricane Irene – Aug US, Caribbean Floods – Apr-May US Severe storms, tornadoes – April US Flash floods – Dec-Jan Australia (…) Toyota, Honda Motor Co. and Nissan Motor Co. -- are losing 6,000 units of production daily (…) lost production may cost more than $500 million a month (…) (…)“the whole PC production chain is stuck at a bottleneck” because of the constraints on hard disc supply. (…) (…)Tens of thousands of people have fled Bangkok, which accounts for 40 per cent of the nation’s economic output (…) UNISDR and PwC Working together to reduce Disaster Risks (..) Superstorm Sandy will end up causing about $20 billion in property damages and $10 billion to $30 billion more in lost business (…) and one of the latest in Nov 2012

5 PwC Collaborative disaster risk management bears a multi-billion dollar savings potential  The costs of corrective disaster risk management are similar to the ones of climate change adaption and are estimated at USD 75-100 billion annually between 2010 and 2050.  If all the USD 1.9 trillion of FDI foreseen for 2014 were disaster-risk sensitive, this would represent critical exposure.  10:1 ratio - Private sector practice shows that for each 1$ invested in disaster risk management, there are potential savings of up to 10$ should a disaster occur.  63% of businesses see opportunities to generate value from disaster risk reduction. 1 Natural hazards: a multi-billion USD cost factor Investing today means making savings tomorrow 1 Economist Intelligence Unit survey  Our joint study ‘Working together to reduce disaster risk’ has shown that opportunities for the private and public sectors to collaborate on risk reduction and building systemic resilience are still largely untapped.  Most corporate disaster risk reduction initiatives have been introspective and remained largely unshared. Similarly, governments, international organizations and NGOs have promoted initiatives without meaningful private sector involvement. The potential of collaborative disaster risk management is widely untapped Slide 5

6 PwC Resilience VS Response Slide 6 ‘Pre’ disaster ‘Post’ disaster Information: Understand natural hazards & disaster risks Impact Assessment Define scenarios Strategy Communication: Notification Immediate action, business continuity Remediation Accounting: Capture and track ongoing expenses Collaborate ResilienceResponse

7 PwC Successful PPP in driving resilience has 3 major pillars: Creating awareness, Enabling exchange and Generating collaborative action Creating shared awareness Enabling exchange Generating collaborative action “Shared benefits for shared investments”: Releasing the untapped potential of collaborative Disaster Risk reduction  Creating shared awareness is an essential precondition for effectively channeling organizations’ DRM efforts towards collective action. Creating shared awareness means raising consciousness about the importance of carefully managing disaster risks and emphasizing possible ways and benefits of collectively addressing them.  Enabling exchange between community members means facilitating the sharing of information in the widest sense of the word: knowledge, know-how, experience, proven practice, insights and ideas. An open and ongoing dialogue is indispensable to sustain cohesion and to unveil opportunities for concrete collaborative action.  Generating collaborative action means guiding community members’ disaster risk reduction efforts around common initiatives. Only projects with tangible benefits can sustainably foster trust and credibility. Slide 7

11 PwC The objective Slide 11 To improve the management of disaster risks by business, for improved performance and for the benefit of the company’s wider relationships with suppliers, communities and markets By fostering dialogue and interaction between the private and the public sector By collecting and gathering knowledge, tools and good practice By setting up a link to the disaster risk community in the form of a platform of dialogue and exchange By developing a conceptual framework to manage disaster risks caused by natural disasters

12 PwCSlide 12 Findings from working with the private sector Industry leading companies have set out their objectives and stepped up efforts to reduce disaster risks, but there is opportunities for improvement and know-how remains unshared ‘A widely untapped opportunity’ – Companies have developed know how, display a desire to share it and have a chance to collaborate with peers and the public sector to increase risk resiliency rather than acting alone Public and private sectors play an active role in addressing the challenges that hinder collaboration and in improving their ongoing DRM Collaborative DRM requires a common vision and the long term cultivation of broad based relationships Finding 1 Finding 2 Finding 3 Finding 4 Share Value Dependant Holistic

13 PwC Case examples. 13 Development of an iPad application which displays a global heatmap of assets – One of our sample companies developed an application which displays the current level of compliance of each of its assets globally. The company used external help to identify the risks for each region where they operate, and has an independent entity conduct yearly audits of its operations. The site are encouraged to raise their compliance level through positive / negative incentives. Local collaboration with peers in the same industry – One of our sample companies identified the risk of fire as a major threat to one of their critical asset. This threat is shared by a peer in the same industry and both companies have agreed to collaboratively share resources in case of a fire. Working with local authorities to identify natural hazard risk exposure – One of our sample companies is working with public authorities to determine potential natural hazards risk. The company relies on public authorities input to develop working sites in certain regions and locally collaborates with them in case of a disaster. Preparation of ‘disaster kits’ and interest from local government – One of our sample companies prepared and shared ‘disaster kits’ in preparation for a major hurricane threat. The local government identified this as an outstanding idea and collaboratively worked with the company to extend the distribution of kits to the public. Hiring staff with a public crisis management background – Some of our sample companies started hiring staff with a public or military crisis management background to be best prepared in case of a disaster. Slide 13

14 PwC Case examples cont. 14 Reducing dependency on key suppliers – Some of our larger sample companies are increasing the supply chain flexibility by increasing supply chain flexibility or integrating critical suppliers. Collaboration with peers in the industry / region to send suppliers in an affected zone – Some of our sample companies are collaborating with peers to concentrate supplies in the few available transportation means in order to send suppliers in affected zones. Preparation of ‘one pagers on country risks’ – One of our sample companies has developed a database containing ‘one pagers’ of risks in each of the countries they operate in. These risks are identified by local operations and the global headquarters reviews the one pagers periodically and defines actions accordingly. Transferring work to other sites – One of our sample companies set up a business continuity plan which allows to offload work to other sites if one of their operations is hit by a disaster. Remote access to work – Some of our sample companies provide the tools and developed the necessary processes for employees to be able to work remotely in case access to the office is impossible. Getting to know public authorities – Some of our sample companies get to know public authorities and stress how critical it is to know your counterpart in order to collaborate in case of a disaster. Scenario planning – Some of our sample companies in Japan have started to collaborate with the government and are running scenarios to define the processes and standards which will lead to create minimum level of service (telecommunication, energy supply, lifeline services) which are necessary during a disaster. Slide 14

15 PwC Some lessons to share 1.Collaboration equals early and continuous engagement 2.Private sectors speaks a different language to Public organisations 3.Horizons of investment are long whereas Mr Market shortsighted 4.Transfer of risk is a great concern 5.Current economic drivers do not drive resilience 6.Regulatory contraints hinder collaboration 7.We have a tendency for amnesia as a species 8.PPP tends to focus on financial funding not holistic resilience Slide 15

16 PwC The future, coming soon Slide 16


18 PwC It is a new way of collaborating, on a global scale, to unlock the potential for public and private sector actors who are ready and willing to make a step forward and take leadership on disaster risk reduction. The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) and PwC, the founding members, join with: R!SE aims to convene stakeholders who have the ability and resources to influence the future direction of DRM. Business, Investors, Insurers, Public Sector, Education professionals and Civil Society. The R!SE Initiative is an ambitious global response to a daunting global challenge. By bringing together 6 connected communities What How Who The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) Florida International University (FIU) Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) AECOM Willis as well as other companies and institutions to build a broad alliance to support the R!SE Initiative. The R!SE Initiative Slide 18 The overall objective of the R!SE Initiative is to make all investments risk-sensitive.
