Co-operative enterprises are a perfect fit with the EU2020 strategy that aims for “a sustainable economy, putting people and responsibility first with a sustained fight against exclusion and a transition to a green economy”.
We already act in this way, putting people at the heart of our business, while at the same time generating long-term wealth for the territories. We bring specific answers and innovative solutions that aim at contributing to EU2020.
How co-operatives help:
Given the range and complexity of the challenges facing European society and the business environment, co-operatives are uniquely placed to provide a counter-balance to shareholder-driven business activity. Our knowledge, goals and experience align perfectly with many of the EU’s 2020 goals. We already play a major role across the spectrum of business and so look forward to sharing this experience constructively with the European institutions over the coming decade.
