Co-operatives for a stronger, fairer, greener, everyday economy

A short paper, produced for the Labour Party Conference (2022) which presents new evidence and insights on the huge potential for co-operatives to contribute to a stronger, fairer and greener everyday economy.

Headline new insights from the paper:

  • 97% of all jobs in the UK co-operative sector are in the ‘everyday economy’1

  • Co-operatives in the UK are more resilient than businesses generally and were five times less likely to cease trading in 2021

  • Worker co-operatives tend to create more jobs than businesses generally
