Cooperatives are highly committed to the social and environmental development of their territory as they are based locally. They do not delocalize. Rooted in the community and managed by local stakeholders, they are able to detect local needs and respond to them. Many cooperatives dedicate themselves to local environmental development; this is the case of Evergreen Cooperative Corporation in the USA.
