The Co‑operative Performance Committee (CPC) has operated for around two decades as a leadership forum on financial and wider performance across co‑operative societies.
What is the CPC?
The CPC is made up of senior finance leaders from the co‑operative sector. It provides strategic direction and best practice guidance in matters of accounting, financial reporting and business performance monitoring.
From championing co‑operatives in accounting standards and consistent accounting treatment, to guidance on performance monitoring for small to medium sized co-operatives, the Committee has made a significant impact.

How will the CPC benefit my co-op?
A narrative reporting framework has been developed to help co-operatives report to their members. It offers guidance on one of the most important aspects of running a successful co‑operative organisation – large or small. The flexible framework is built around three core pillars:
- Member value: how it is delivering value to its members
- Member voice: how its members have directed the co-op
- Co‑operative values: how it is living up to the co-op values
A Guide to Co-operative KPIs has also been produced to help co-ops understand how to report against the co-op values and principles.
