Blueprint for Australia

The BCCM formed in 2013 as a legacy of the United Nations International Year of Co-operatives to promote the role of co-operatives and mutuals in the economy. Businesses owned by or on behalf of their members represent a sector with a combined membership base of more than 30 million.

Members of BCCM also recognise the role of business in showing leadership and promoting informed national discussion on important issues.

‘Blueprint for an Enterprising Nation’ is the second edition of BCCM’s policy guide updated to reflect the significant legislative and regulatory gains we have made.

The business environment for co-operatives and mutuals has improved but there is still much to be done.
