"To change the world means doing things in a COOPERATIVE manner. We believe that a different way of managing business is possible, where work prevails over capital, and where everyone makes an impact. It’s a model where success is distributed more fairly, more evenly, and takes on deeper meaning when we can transform it into employment. We know it is not a perfect model, but we are convinced that it is the best model to build a better world, and we know that it is our responsibility to contribute to it."
