Mutual benefit societies welcome the Social Economy Action Plan


Mutual benefit societies welcome the European Commission’s long-awaited Social Economy Action Plan, published on 9 December 2021. The Action Plan proposes a definition for the social economy and addresses three main areas: Adapting policy and legal frameworks to the needs of the Social Economy, opening up opportunities for the Social Economy by improving access to funding and to enhance recognition of the Social Economy and thus deploying its potential.

Loek Caubo, President of AIM states:
“We are very delighted that finally a definition for all Social Economy has been proposed. It will help to raise awareness of the positive impact, mutual benefit societies have on the society as well as on the economy.”
