Trusted advice on
COVID-19 for businesses, policymakers and chambers of commerce
The COVID-19 pandemic is a global health and societal emergency that requires effective immediate action by governments, individuals and businesses.
In order to combat the health and economic effects of the crisis, the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) is working closely with partners to ensure that the latest, most reliable information and tailored guidance reaches the global business community.
This website contains vetted advice for businesses, policymakers and chambers on how to overcome the unfolding COVID-19 crisis.
As the institutional representative of 45 million businesses, ICC is at the forefront of global efforts to shape policies that limit the health and economic impacts of COVID-19.
Our practical policy recommendations address cross-cutting global issues affecting businesses of all sizes in areas such as trade finance, taxation, and intellectual property.
All businesses have a key role to play in minimising the likelihood of transmission and impact on society. The most important way businesses can help is by adopting health best practices. As trusted voices in their local communities, businesses also have an important role in improving understanding of COVID-19 among their employees, customers and stakeholders. The guides and media resources in this section help businesses spread knowledge – not the disease.
Businesses must also adapt to the new social and economic circumstances the pandemic is creating. This section includes resources for businesses to understand, prepare for and respond to the unprecedented disruption.
