Disaster Response

In response to employee concern, Boeing Global Corporate Citizenship may conduct an enterprisewide disaster relief drive in support of victims of emergencies and disasters. Responses can include disaster relief grants, donations from business units, volunteer efforts, loaned employees, and enterprisewide drives, as appropriate.

Employee concern must be significant, widespread and representative of a broad geographic cross-section of Boeing sites and business units. After a 72-hour assessment period the GCC Corporate team, together with Boeing senior leadership, determines the appropriate response to employee concern including whether matching funds will be made available.

The following general guidelines and criteria have been established to aid in determining company involvement and the level of support.

  • Moderate to major domestic or global natural disaster, level 4 or 5.
  • Humanitarian, altruistic intent.
  • Boeing people or facilities involved.
  • Significant and widespread employee concern.
  • Multiple Boeing sites, states, business units involved, cross-jurisdictional needs.

Disaster Scale Examples

    Action: If warranted and requested by employees, the Global Corporate Citizenship function will consider an enterprisewide drive.
  • Level 4: Multiple urban centers, regional impact. Usually results in national disaster declaration and moderate government assistance.

  • Level 3: Minor: Citywide or areawide, minor damage. May result in a disaster declaration.
