Mutuo is developing a business sector policy Guide for Consumer Co-operatives Worldwide. This will be an opportunity to address regulatory, legislative and policy barriers to the development and growth of consumer co-operatives around the world.
Its principal use will be to develop coherent policy positions that can be used at a global, regional and national level.
Detailed survey work of CCW members will begin shorty and we look forward to engaging with members to identify the priorities of the consumer co-operative sector.
The document builds on Mutuo’s previous policy work in producing the International Co-operative Alliance Global Manifesto in 2017.
The business sector policy guide will be published in summer 2018.
Consumer Co-operatives Worldwide (CCW) unites, represents, and defends the interests of 26 national organizations of consumer co-operatives around the globe, which represent 75 million individual members, and which register a combined total annual turnover of more than 500 billion EUR.
