The UPS International Disaster Relief and Resilience Award: Recognising Business’ Contribution to address International Disasters

Deadline: 17 February 2017

The UPS International Disaster Relief and Resilience Award, supported by the Department for International Development (DFID) is currently open for nominations. The award seeks to recognise business’ unique contribution to addressing international disasters, helping communities to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters.

Award Categories

A successful entry can focus on:

  • Any aspect of the disaster management cycle: disaster risk reduction, risk mitigation, resilience building, disaster preparedness, disaster response, post disaster recovery and rebuilding.
  • A specific international disaster, or on an overall global/regional programme or strategy that your company has put in place to address international disasters. For the latter, you should illustrate your entry with examples or case studies of how the programme has been implemented in one or more specific international disasters.
  • Natural disasters, conflict and or man-made disasters, or a combination of these.
  • International disasters that took place any time within the last seven years (i.e. since 1 January 2010). Please see the next section for the definition of an international disaster.
  • Entries must demonstrate both a social benefit AND a business case for the company’s engagement in international disaster relief and resilience.
  • Entries can, if appropriate, present the work that companies have done collaboratively as part of a partnership or group to address international disasters.

Eligibility Criteria

  • This category is open to all members of Business in the Community (BITC) and any non-member private sector business. This may include social enterprises but does not include charity organisations or NGOs unless they are tied to a corporate entity in a joint application, for example, Company X and the Company X Foundation.
  • Entries can focus on contributions to international disaster relief and resilience that your company has made individually, or as part of a partnership or coalition. Please note that entries must be submitted by a private sector partner. Entries submitted directly by humanitarian partners will not be accepted.
  • This Award is open to businesses based in any country. The entry must focus on impact in international disasters.
  • The entry should be for a programme that goes above and beyond any regulatory or legislative requirements of the business. For example, a critical infrastructure provider, such as a water or telecommunications company, which is legally required by the government to respond to critical incidents would not be able to enter this work for this award. They would however be able to enter other programmes that exceed these legal requirements.
  • Businesses of any size can enter and will have an equal chance of winning. Entries are assessed against the scoring guide as relevant to the business’s operational scope.

How to Apply

Interested applicants must submit their applications, online via given website.
