01 Oct 2014
This third edition of the Report, analyzing data from 2012, highlights the impact of the co-operative sector across the globe. We see evidence of a sector in constant growth, able to withstand the global financial crisis, positively influencing the economic and social wellbeing of people around the world.
The Report studies co-operatives worldwide from 65 countries, highlighting the global nature of the co-operative movement.
The top 300 of these co-operatives are ranked based on turnover as well as the ratio of turnover to gross domestic product (GDP) per capita, relating the turnover of the co-operative to the purchasing power of the country in which it operates in a comparable way. Additional analysis in the report includes an overall description of the 2014 database and sectorial rankings based on turnover as well as the ratio of turnover to GDP per capita.
