Business Action

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. Here you can find resources for businesses to understand, prepare for and respond to the unprecedented disruption.

ICC also encourages businesses to donate to the WHO’s COVID-19 Solidary Response Fund.
