Employee-owned cooperatives can be a powerful model for aligning sustainability and corporate culture since giving workers a voice in running their organizations can strengthen the bonds between them and equip companies for long-term growth. Treating workers with respect and investing in them - quite literally - aligns with the values of sustainability.
New England is a hotbed of activity for worker-owned endeavors and NGOs that provide technical assistance, financing and guidance. On October 1st we'll explore the nexus of sustainability and employee-owned co-ops. Our initial presenters are slated to be:
ReVision Energy - an employee-owned solar and renewable energy contractor, whose mission is to "lead our community in solving the environmental problems caused by fossil fuels while alleviating economic and social injustice."
CERO COOP - Cooperative Energy, Recycling, and Organic is an award-winning, Dorchester-based commercial composter. CERO's mission is to "keep food waste out of landfills, save money for clients and provide good green jobs for Boston's hard working communities."
Equal Exchange - a 33 year old worker-owned co-op in MA sells fair-trade coffee, chocolate, tea, fruit, and nuts with a mission to build economically just and environmentally sound trade partnerships fostering mutually beneficial connections between farmers and consumers.
