Independent Social Responsibility review for Midcounties Co-operative

Lead Organisation

Sustainability West Midlands
Project Managers: Anna Bright (Chief Executive) / Simon Slater (Director of Policy and Partnerships)


Since 2011 SWM has acted as an independent critical friend to the Midcounties Co-operative providing an annual review of their Social Responsibility Report, highlighting areas of good practice and challenging them to be the best in class when it comes to sustainable co-operatives.

“Over the past five years SWM has provided invaluable independent expertise and supported the Society in our work towards being more sustainable and helping to build strong local communities. SWM is able to bring their in-depth awareness of good practice to our Environmental Steering Group. They encourage us to build on our achievements and showcase them, but also challenge our approach to ensure we stretch ourselves and go one step further.” – Mike Pickering, Community and Sustainability Manager, The Midcounties Co-operative
