Tara Shine, Change by Degrees: "Climate leadership is about more than emissions reductions. It's about making a transition away from fossil fuels and business as usual fair for people. At the end of the day, we are doing this for people." 
Katie Hoard, AB InBev: “How are we going to achieve our net zero ambition as a company? We need to account for how we are engaging with people across the value chain, and balancing mitigation alongside adaptation."
Susan Maina, Practical Action: "For people on the planet to be resilient in the face of climate change, we need a diversified & regenerative system. Companies need to support this, with significant changes to the way that they think about supply, procurement & partnership."
Katie Hoard, AB InBev: "It’s really important to consider digital inclusion. Network access, phone ownership is still an issue. We need to ensure equal access to information and to the tools and resources that farmers need  to adapt and thrive."
Tara Shine, Change by Degrees: "Business Fights Poverty & Change by Degrees’ Climate Justice framework is a structured accessible way for businesses to start to think about how they can have a positive & net positive effect in terms of climate justice."
Juan Echanove, CARE: "The fact is that these people who are suffering the most impacts of climate change, they are not polluters. So we have to support them to adapt to the changes in climate, but they should not have responsibilities in terms of mitigation."
Susana Maina, Practical Action: On how income accelerator programs like Nestle's can help farmers: "Companies ... are making commitments supporting achievement of living income within their supply chains, & in this agenda, it's overlapping with climate justice.” 
Juan Echanove, CARE: "Local communities know the solutions, they know what works. They don't need external experts. They need spaces to meet & learn from each other. For business, it's not only about adding evaluations, it's asking the communities themselves."
Susan Maina, Practical Action: “One of the biggest shifts companies have to make is to think beyond their own sourcing needs, to the needs of the farming communities and the wider food and environmental system.”
