Cooperatives are…

A Powerhouse in the European Economy

Cooperatives are a cornerstone of Europe’s economy, contributing significantly to GDP and promoting sustainable, inclusive growth. Their democratic, community-focused model plays a crucial role in job creation and social welfare, underscoring their importance in Europe’s economic resilience and equity.


These are our 7 priorities.

Our blueprint manifesto outlines seven critical priorities to guide us and European policymakers in the coming five years. A key role should be given to cooperatives in building our economy and communities. We want to push the commitment of doing business differently — where the success of a company is also measured by its contributions to a healthier society, a greener earth, and with people at the centre.
