The Vision of the ECG

The Economy for the Common Good (ECG) is an alternative economic system built on values that promote the needs of the entire population. It is a tool for economic, political, and social change – a bridge to a better future.

Economic

On the economic level the ECG is a viable and workable alternative for businesses of diverse sizes and legal structures. Its goal is to evaluate the management success of businesses based on values oriented towards promoting the common good.

Political

On the political level the movement seeks to bring about changes to current legislation. The overarching goal is to ensure a good life for all living things and for the planet as a whole, supported by a sustainable economic system. Human dignity, global fairness and solidarity, ecological sustainability, social justice, and democratic participation are at the top of the agenda.

Social

On the social level the ECG is an initiative to raise awareness for systemic change that seeks to motivate as many people as possible to cooperative, conscientious action.

The Economy for the Common Good is a source of hope and courage and strives to cooperate with other movements for economic, social and environmental justice.

It is an open, participative process with a grassroots structure and a global scope.
