Influence on local / national decision makers
The team of leaders of FairKauf includes a former bank director with high professional qualification and social engagement working as the honorary general manager. Other qualified and motivated members form a planning group, communicating with politicians, economic leaders and non-governmental organisations (NGOs). They look for ways how to combine the economic and the social.
Partnership work involved
As a multi-stakeholder co-operative, FairKauf eG has a mixed membership (individuals, firms, private and public institutions, foundations) and mixed customers. It is a ‘normal’ department store open for all, in a good location, registered as a co-operative society and affiliated to professional associations (chamber of commerce) and a co-operative auditing federation.
