From Co-operative News's coverage of this years International Cooperative Alliance conference:
Presenting the results of the research, Yuill Herbert of Sustainability Solutions referred to ILO’s Director General statement for the International Day of Co-operatives, in which he linked co-operatives with sustainable development. Mr Ryder praised co-operatives for expanding into new and innovative areas such as recycling and renewable energy.
Mr Herbert said: "Co-operatives are anti-capitalist, it is inherent to their DNA. My advice to the movement is to keep on going, keep promoting your co-operative difference. Sustainable development is a sweet spot for co-operatives. It's about reframing the agenda, prosperity and solving problems rather than creating problems."
