Cooperatives for 2030 campaign

As the global voice of the cooperative movement, we are committed to educating cooperatives about the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), helping cooperative enterprises respond to the UN’s call to action and collecting information about co-operative contributions to the 2030 Agenda, in order to better position cooperatives as partners throughout the implementation process.

What is coops for 2030?

Coops for 2030 is a campaign for cooperatives to learn more about the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), commit to pledges to contribute to achieving the SDGs, and report their progress.

Pledge your co-op!

We have identified the targets within the 17 SDGs of most relevance to cooperatives. The identified targets are grouped into three main action areas: eradicating poverty, improving access to basic goods and services and protecting the environment. Cooperatives active in the food and agriculture sector have a designated space to explore their impact, thanks to the support of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

Within each action areas are the relevant targets, suggested pledges for cooperatives to make to achieve those targets and suggested indicators for co-operatives to track their progress.
