Europe’s co-operative banks represent 87 million members and 705.000 employees and have an average market share in Europe of about 20%. Founded in 1970, today the EACB is a leading professional lobbying association in the European banking industry. 

The EACB supports and promotes the values of the co-operative business model in European and international institutions, offering an alternative to the “shareholder value model” and the financial market-oriented institutions. Central to these values is the principle of democracy “One person - One vote”. The core values of this business model of Co-operative banks are; democracy -materialised by the co-operative share, a strong commitment to social values, and the proximity offered by the network of more than 43,000 bank branches to its customers.
