The Measuring the Co-operative Difference Research Network (MCDRN) and the Centre of Excellence in Accounting and Reporting for Co-operatives (CEARC) joined forces in 2014 to organize an international conference, focused on how and why co-operatives assess their performance and their impacts on society.
Out of this conference, researchers developed a book highlighting the latest tools, methodologies, and experiences with measuring and reporting the co-operative difference from around the world. Co-operatives for Sustainable Communities explores five interconnected themes:
- Statistics and data collection
- Putting co-operative principles into practice
- Community impact
- Member and stakeholder engagement
- Reporting practices (co-operative identity and sustainability)
