We believe that an economy based largely on exploiting resources and labour in low-wage countries cannot function in the long term. One alternative is the common good economy, which we actively support in our region.
The common good economy establishes an ethical economic model. As an alternative to the current understanding of the economy, it is based on the values of human dignity, ecological responsibility, solidarity, social justice, democratic co-determination and transparency.
The well-being of people and the environment becomes the primary goal of economic activity.
At regular intervals, we draw up a common good balance sheet that quantitatively measures our efforts to work for a better world. We prepared the last common good balance sheet in 2022 and achieved a common good score of 322 points.
You can find out more about the approaches of the common good economy and its fields of action at www.ecogood.org.
