The Co-operative Group gets a Fair Tax Mark

Posted on

As the Fair Tax Mark noted yesterday:

We are immensely proud to announce that the Co-operative Group is the latest recipient of a Fair Tax Mark.

I can be included in the 'we' as I am technical director of the Fair Tax Mark.

As we also noted:

The Co-operative Group champions a better way of doing business for members and communities. With tax remaining the number one ethical issue with consumers, we are delighted that the Group has made a public commitment to be honest and open about tax by becoming Fair Tax Mark accredited. The full details of their new tax policy can be seen here.

The Co-operative Group is one of the world’s largest consumer co-operatives and has interests across food, funerals, insurance, electrical and legal services. The Co-operative Group operates a total of 3,750 outlets, with more than 70,000 employees and an annual turnover of approximately £10 billion.


The Co-op has been a pioneer for a lot longer than most businesses. It is good to have them on board.
