Do you want to promote the values that drive your business?

Co-operatives were the first economic organizations that clearly and openly declared the set of values and principles the members wanted the business to be based on, and these values present a challenge to the co-op's members, directors and management. These values subsequently inform all the decisions and activities of the co-operative organization.

 Bringing cooperative values to the awareness of managers and workers will make this process more transparent and efficient as the co-op seeks to align its actions and those of its individual members with these shared values.

Co-operatives need tools to allow them to measure the application of their values. The Co-op Index is a tool to assist your co-op with the challenge.
