What we do

The BCCM exists to raise awareness of co-operatives and mutuals and improve the business environment so that member-owned businesses can compete on a level playing field with other forms of business.

We work hard to identify and remove barriers to fair competition and innovation for co-operative and mutual enterprises (CMEs) and we produce research to show the important contribution of these businesses to the economy and community.

The BCCM is a powerful network of leading co-operative and mutual businesses operating across the Australia economy. Coming together under the BCCM umbrella, co-ops and mutuals have a stronger voice and greater visibility.
