I did, but I went to audio options, took of the computer audio and rejoined and now it works.
Dear all, if you experience any problems with the sound, try turning off all other apps on your computer to just leave Zoom. If you still experience any issues, you can disconnect and dial in to the meeting using a telephone line (numbers provided in the confirmation e-mail you have received). Thank you and have a good meeting.

@Gladys - it looked like 'Food' was not prioritised in the SDG Pathway for Forest; can you explain why? Thank you for sharing

@Gladys: how Is Mondi group research activities impacted by COVID 19 now and also what is the strategy to reduce its forest consumption , when we have more and more online communication and less and less need for actual paper? thanks!
I send you a link with the key information.

@Corina - COVID 19 has highlighted the critical importance of increasing the resilience of our planet and our businesses. We are focussed on, and our research also supports, the importance of sustainable forest management to allow us to provide a sustainable and renewable fibre supply to meet the needs of society. Our research is focussed on aspects such as maintaining and supporting biodiversity, water stewardship within the context of our forest landholdings.
How does WBCSD ensure maximum uptake from member and non-member organisations to adopt these roadmaps? Additionally, I am curious to know about South Asian countries, particularly India Inc.’s participation and drive towards adopting and collaborating to progress towards the charted roadmaps?
@Corina, our main priority has been to be able to keep our operations while ensuring the safety and security of our people and clients. A number of actions where taken locally to support local communities and supply chains
@anjali - We try to ensure uptake by involving key stakeholders from the outset. We work with different industry groups who take the Roadmaps to their communities and members. For India, the Cement Roadmap was driven mainly from companies active in India and was the first regional adaptation of the framework.
see Indian Cement Sector Roadmap here:
In addition, the companies who lead the development of the Roadmaps also implement them through their working groups, for example the Forest Solutions Group or the Tire Industry Project

ll panelists: the drop of oil prices affected a large number of industries, including those presented here in the panel of discussion. How are you prepared at industry level to countermeasure these long term consequences (I refer here for example at the energy mix, need of fuel, energy from gas, etc). thanks !
Landuse, biodiversity, new forms of foods etc.
@Gladys thank you
Are there plans for a construction/facilities management roadmap
The built environment and existing stock crosses many SDG's
@Victoria - That is an interesting area for to explore and we are in conversation with a few groups to see potential for projects.
excellent - please keep me posted on this
In this Covid-19 scenario, apart from CSR.. corporate social responsibility what are the other ways through which business can contribute to effective SDG implementation? Do this Roadmap shed some light on this?
