Global bodies such as the G20, the UN or the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), should take into account that co-operative enterprises are different from other types of businesses because they are member-owned and follow the co-operative values and principles. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

To this end, the Alliance’s Co-operative Law Committee works towards determining the best way that the co-operative specificities can be translated into international and national frameworks. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

Also, the Alliance’s International Accounting Standards Working Group gathers experts from members to provide input to the IASB regarding accounting rules and the way they may affect co-operatives.

The Alliance also works with governmental agencies with the aim of improving national legal frameworks on co-operatives.
