what specific actions do you think companies can usefully take in order to ensure a successful COP26, in particular to ensure that our respective governments engage effectively in the ratcheting-up process?

Question for All building on Liam's strategic purpose point:How should Small Businesses collaborate with the Larger companies in their Value Chain? (e.g. if we've priced our Carbon, if we're already working toward a Net Zero goal, etc.)Should we reach out to Sustainability Teams to let them know we can help? Are Procurement Teams generally on page yet? Should we go to CFOs instead?https://www.linkedin.com/in/chrisgassman/

I am interested in the prospects for process changes in the Ag sector to drive carbon sequestration in soils, however as climate change is anticipated to alter biomes and the characteristics of ecoregions, can carbon sequestered in the near term through better farming practices be expected to remain contained over the longer term as climate regimes (and hence farming activities) shift poleward?

For Liam Condon - What do Policy leaders need to understand about engaging agriculture in delivering carbon reduction?

Q for all- what is the role of ambitious businesses in bringing on board the laggards, esp those who may seek to block policy changes /carbon pricing?

What was the name of "the Carbon Game" that Carina mentioned? I've found a few and was not sure which one was recommended
Ms. De Boissezon points to the threat of yellow vests. This raises the opportunity of the business sector to recognize the power of ‘green vests’ and the divestment movement. Can virtuous and forward-thinking companies promote community-based policy initiatives (in concert with government) to capture public demand for sustainability through cooperative aggregation models to release this demand in the marketplace more directly than lobbying for a higher ‘price’ for carbon or other regulatory incentives. The rural best practices from Bayer are an example. 2030 Districts in cities are another. Break down the silos !

Q for all- what is the most important driver to the corporate leadership to commit to climate mitigation? Is the same drive to push leadership towards SGDs? If the leadership has no intent to change the business-usual pattern, what could change that? Thank you :)

We encourage everyone to continue using the chat function to submit more questions and remarks to the panelists. We will do our best to get to all questions. Thank you.
