Corporate Chief Resilient Officers (CCROs) Network 

The UNDRR-convened network of Corporate Chief Resilience Officers (CCROs) intends to advance the resilience of businesses to disaster, and hence the one of society as a whole. The network will gather key senior experts from 10 to 20 large multinationals to share, establish, and disseminate good practices internationally. 

Why enterprise resilience is important?  

Resilience is vital for any enterprise to survive and thrive in a complex and volatile environment.  

This ability to adapt and grow amid challenges is not only beneficial for the enterprises themselves but also extends to impact all their stakeholders and surrounding communities.  

So, where to start? 

Resilience Maturity Assessment (REMA) Tool

Assess your organization's resilience using this tool. This maturity model can be applied to micro, small, medium, and large enterprises.

Take a step back and assess six operational elements that are recurrent in resilience practices and can be used as foundational “pillars” for assessing enterprise maturity.

Then, build upon this assessment to implement suggested improvements adjusting to your specific context.


The CCRO network will have members covering diverse sectors such as technology, financial services, health care, etc. These members are expected to have a combined workforce of 1.26 million people across several countries in the world.
