Roundtables

How are they organized?

The PACN is implemented through Sectoral Roundtables (MS, as per its Spanish acronym) hosted on a voluntary basis. Roundtable sessions will be comprised of producers, groups and/or associations, companies and sectoral chambers from each of the productive value chain links, hence ensuring full national geographic representation.

Each MS is coordinated and assisted by a group of specialized consultants, selected through an open call by the PACN according to their technical and budgetary proposals. From the product categories defined by the MS, the selected consulting group develops the calculation methodology based on a case study, a sectoral calculation manual and good environmental management practices manuals.
