About the World Cooperative Monitor project

The main goal of the World Co-operative Monitor project published by the International Co-operative Alliance and Euricse 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.

In 2016, the world’s largest 300 co-operatives and mutuals have grown their turnover by 7.20% to USD $2.53tn (2,533.1bn), according to the World Co-operative Monitor (WCM). The findings were presented at the International Summit of Cooperatives in Quebec. In 2015 the total turnover of the world’s Top 300 co-operatives and mutuals already increased from USD $2,205.70bn to USD $2,360.05bn. The world's largest 300 co-operative businesses then recorded a 6.9% growth in combined turnover to just under USD 2.4 trillion. In the 2014 Monitor, the top 300 co-operative and mutual enterprises accounted for 2,205.7 billion USD in turnover. 

The World Co-operative Monitor is the successor to the former Global 300 project. Global 300 archives from 2004 to 2008 can be downloaded from the sidebar of this website.
