social economy


According to the United Nations Secretary General report on Cooperatives in Social Development (2017), the social economy contributes about 7% to the world’s gross domestic product (GDP). 

As the European Commission’s reflection paper ‘For a Sustainable Europe by 2030’ points out, the social economy is an opportunity and a driver for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at European and at global level, especially for the achievement of Objective 8 “promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work”.
