World Co-operative Monitor 2012
01 Oct 2012
The inaugural World Co-operative Monitor, ranking the 300 largest co-operative and mutual enterprises by turnover and collecting data on all sizes of co-operatives across the globe by sector.
“This new data demonstrates that not only do co-operatives have significant scale, but that this scale is sustainable even in the face of difficult global economic conditions,” said Charles Gould, ICA Director-General. “More than this, with USD 2 trillion in annual revenue among the 300 largest co-operatives alone, this is a sector that is no side-player, but a major, global, economic force.”
