World Cooperatieve Monitor

The importance of the World Co-operative Monitor, including a top 300, cannot be understated. Not only is it a crucial tool which we can use to raise the profile of co-operatives to policy-makers and industry professionals, but it also provides an incredibly useful starting point for researchers and academics alike.

The world’s largest 300 co-operatives and mutuals have grown their turnover by 7.20 per cent to USD $2.53t

Over 32 per cent of these operate in agriculture, 39 per cent in insurance, 19 per cent in wholesale and retail trade and 6 per cent in banking and financial services. Some of the top 300 co-ops are also active in the health and social care sector (1%), the industry sector (2%) and other services and activities.

The World Co-operative Monitor 2016 is the fifth edition of the annual research report produced by the International Co-operative Alliance (the Alliance) with the scientific and technical support of the European Research Institute on Cooperative and Social Enterprises (Euricse). The research, widely considered the primary source for global statistics on the economic dimensions of the co-operative movement, includes a new feature in 2016: an analysis of the capital structure of the Top 300 co-operative enterprises. Also included in this year’s edition is a special section focusing on consumer co-operatives within the wholesale and retail trade sector.
