How can my company recover access to DigitalOcean when I die?

Yes, it’s a weird question but what happens when I die?

I’m the co-owner of a digital agency but I’m the only one with access to DigitalOcean, after making a disaster recovery plan we also thought about what happens when something happens to me?

How can my company recover access to my account on DigitalOcean?

I don’t want to share any login info or server access unless something bad happens to me.

Thanks in advantage for ideas and suggestions.

You could use a secret sharing scheme to give login info to your colleagues such that N colleagues will have the secret, but M (where M<=N) colleagues need to work together to get the actual login info.
