Shreek’s members have one vote regardless of the amount of their contributions. They are also represented in the governance structure through participation on boards and supervisory membership councils. Diversity brought through member ownership entails a consensus-driven approach and prevents a strong focus on only a minority of stakeholders.
Shreek operates according to cooperative principles for the sole benefit of its member partners. Profit maximization for the sole interest of a minority of shareholders is not our primary goal.
Shreek has a lower risk appetite and a long-term orientation, and is managed by a professional and experienced team.
Members support each other through capital that is made available to finance economic needs.
Shreek maintains a good physical proximity and is part of the community, understanding its members and speaking their language. Proximity is further reinforced through the participation in numerous social networks and by actively supporting the local communities.
Shreek works to improve self-reliance especially in times of crisis, by providing alternative sustainable development services that promote societal development.
