New Zealand co-op report
New Zealand’s co-operative economy has been comprehensively mapped for the first time, revealing the significance of the sector in terms of revenue, jobs, and membership, as well as obvious differences between New Zealand’s and other co-operative economies.
This research, a collaboration between Cooperative Business New Zealand, Massey University and the University of Auckland was led by Massey's Dr Elena Garnevska. It found that the co-operative sector contributes revenues of more than $42.3 billion per annum. New Zealand’s Top 30 co-operatives and mutuals are responsible for 1.4 million memberships, employment of 48,500 people, and a revenue to GDP ratio of 17.5 per cent.
