Memoria de sostenibilidad: una propuesta adaptada para las cooperativas de enseñanza en el País Vasco

Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainable Development are concepts utilized by large companies. For their part, cooperatives have often been considered the leaders in social innovation, but this temporary advantage when it comes to taking on commitments has not been carried to its ultimate consequences by establishing a systematic management of their social responsibility. It is not enough simply to apply models that have been designed with large capital companies in mind; they must be adapted to the specific nature of cooperatives. The Basque Country Federation of Educational Cooperatives is aware of this need and during 2004 and 2005 it is working, in collaboration with a research team from the Institute of Cooperative Studies of the University of Deusto, on a model adapted to the particular circumstances of cooperatives in the education sector. This article presents the partial findings of the research carried out to date.
