Why should we use the marque?

The United Nations support for an International Year of Co-operatives (IYC) in 2012 galvanized the global movement across every region and every sector uniting co-operatives behind a single logo and tagline. The International Co-operative Alliance is keen to build on the success of the International Year and has developed a global co-operative identity that ALL co-operatives can align with and which differentiates us from other forms of business.
