The Conference of the Higher Council of Cooperatives of Euskadi was presided by Lehendakari, Iñigo Urkullu, who highlighted the importance of Cooperatives' commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals, objectives that contribute to sustainable economic growth and quality employment, always with the person at the center of their activity.
According to Urkullu, the cooperative model works and demonstrates that placing the person at the center is the best instrument to gain efficiency and competitiveness in a global market. "This model focuses on the person, reinvests in their environment and seeks maximum well-being"

The act, in turn, served to recognize the work done by 69 Euskadi cooperatives, which have completed more than 50 years. Nearly half of those cooperatives recognized in the act belong to MONDRAGON Corporation. Its presidents received recognition on behalf of the entire group of these cooperatives.
