Who we are

As the apex organization for Danish cooperatives, we promote the cooperative alternative across many sectors of the economy, from banking and insurance to craftsman and construction. Established in 1922, Kooperationen provides high quality professional legal and governance advice and guidance to new cooperative start-ups as well as to established cooperatives.

Led by our cooperative values and principles we aim to bring together all those with a passion and interest in cooperative action and we run our business solely for the benefit of our members. And that is precisely what makes us a bit different from other conventional employers’ organisations in Denmark.


What we do

  • Legal and governance advice and guidance to new co-operative start-ups as well as to established cooperatives;
  • Legal mediation and arbitration;
  • Collective bargaining;
  • Policy;
  • National and international development projects.
