They support the way in which we shape and lead the resilience debate.  At EPC we collaborate with subject matter experts in the public and private sectors; government, academia and global business. Our partners share our values, our commitment and our aspirations. They provide valuable sector level insight and expertise that complement our capabilities.


We are grateful to the following partners for their collaboration and ongoing support:
