What is the World Cooperative Monitor

The World Cooperative Monitor (WCM) is a project designed to collect robust economic, organizational, and social data about cooperatives worldwide. It is the only report of its kind collecting annual quantitative data on the global cooperative movement. The publication reports on the world’s largest cooperatives and mutuals, or groups of coop­eratives and mutuals, including rankings of the Top 300 and sectoral analysis.

The World Cooperative Monitor moves into its 2nd decade!

For 11 years now, the International Cooperative Alliance (ICA) with the scientific and technical support of the European Research Institute on Cooperative and Social Enterprises (Euricse) has produced this annual research report aiming to illustrate the economic and so­cial contributions of cooperatives and mutuals. We have learned a lot over these many years and have provided the cooperative movement with a significant tool to evaluate its own positioning and highlight the importance of cooperation in the world to the general public and policy makers. Learn more about what has been achieved over the past decade.

Since 2018, the World Cooperative Monitor includes analysis of the contribution of the Top 300 to the objectives of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The 2020 and 2021 reports include reflections on how cooperatives contribute to the recovery.


After the research on the impact of Covid-19, the team sought to investigate the changes the pandemic prompted in the use of digital tools, in particular as pertains to member engagement and the specificities of the cooperative identity.
