The main goal of the World Co-operative Monitor project is to develop a multi-dimensional database reporting on the socio-economic value and impact of co-operatives both within a global scenario and in their regional and national contexts.
Since 2011, Euricse has been collaborating with the International Co-operative Alliance, the organization that represents the cooperative movement at a global level, on mapping the world’s biggest cooperatives in all economic sectors.
Cooperatives have time until May 15th to complete the online questionnaire and submit their coop’s 2013 data to be included in the upcoming report.
A short guide to completing the form is available here.
This short questionnaire includes basic questions about economic and social data and is available in English, Chinese, French, Italian, Greek, Portuguese, Spanish and Turkish.
The third edition (October 2014) of the World Co-operative Monitor revealed that the turnover of the largest 300 co-operatives in the report over the last 3 years has grown by 11.6% to reach 2.2 trillion USD in 2012. You can download the complete report on this page
As Dame Pauline Green, President of the International Co-operative Alliance, said: “The importance of the World Co-operative Monitor cannot be understated. Not only is it a crucial tool which we can use to raise the profile of co-operatives to policy-makers and industry professionals, but it also provides an incredibly useful starting point for researchers and academics alike”.
