Nintendo has explained its BCP (business continuity plan) in case there is an earthquake in Japan or another natural disaster such as a new pandemic
Japan is located in one of the most unstable seismic zones on the planet. Only in the last few months have there been two earthquakes of magnitude 4.4 and 4.3 in Kyotoa city with a million and a half inhabitants where Nintendo’s headquarters have been located for 125 years.
This leads large Japanese companies to design crisis plans in the event of an earthquake. Nintendo has detailed its crisis plans at the last annual meeting of investors, when a curious shareholder wanted to know what it was your contingency plan “in case of natural disaster”.
