Today, cooperatives are operating around the world in nearly every industry and sector. They represent a significant portion of the world economy and they are aligned with mankind’s highest ideas of democracy, environmental sustainability and increased income equality. Yet, despite their breadth, scale and contributions to society, cooperatives are not well understood or appreciated by the universal public.
The cooperative business model should be the way of the future. A greater understanding of the cooperative business model will help current cooperatives succeed and boost the creation of new cooperatives. A shift to more cooperatives around the world will bring power back to local communities, significantly reduce the number of people living in poverty, and help protect our environment and natural resources.
