¿What is a consumer group?

A consumer group is a group of people who come together, moved by various reasons (mainly ecological, economic and health), organize themselves to make family purchases together and then obtain various advantages; advantages that affect both the members of the group and society in general, the environment, etc.

The creation of a consumption group arises from the need for a group of people who believe in more responsible consumption.

SDG 12. Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals, also known as Global Goals, were adopted by all UN Member States in 2015 as a universal call to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.

The 17 SDGs are integrated, recognizing that interventions in one area will affect the outcomes of others and that development must balance environmental, economic and social sustainability.

In this context, Enclave de Oliva as a Cooperative Society is positioned within the framework established by “Goal-12- Responsible Production and Consumption“.

To achieve this objective, Enclave de Oliva bets on alternative commercial channels, transforming the idea of conventional markets, which understand the company from a single dimension, the purely productive that is due to the vision that has prevailed in the economy since the Industrial Revolution and until the subsequent extension of capitalism. We do it in a simple cooperative way between consumers and producers through consumer groups, consumer cooperatives, local markets and other forms of association that to a greater or lesser extent get organized to obtain products coming from an efficient management of natural resources.

With this mechanism there is a direct effect on the reduction of the ecological footprint mainly by creating more efficient production and supply chains that in turn add value to the food security of consumers and leads us towards a fair economy with the producer.

There is no other way to achieve economic growth and sustainable development, it is urgent to reduce the ecological footprint through a change in production methods and consumption of goods and resources.

Three pillars of sustainability: The economic, the social, and the environment

Only companies that integrate the three pillars of sustainability into their business model will help solve the main challenges of our era, enabling us to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (Global Goals), which all United Nations member countries have pledged to achieve by 2030.

If the market is only a game between the demand and supply of a product or service, the company is its main instrument, and it has to be as efficient as possible to satisfy the demand and extract the greatest possible economic benefit from the activity. This is a way of understanding the life of the past:

First, because the company, whether larger or smaller, is a group of people who relate to each other on a daily basis. We are not human capital, nor are we just another resource: we give meaning to company. Moreover, it is not only the people we create, manage or work in companies that matter, but also those who relate to them: customers, suppliers, collaborators, etc.

Second, because in that traditional definition of the company, an essential element was forgotten: the environment. Everything was reduced to a relationship between invested capital, human resources and raw materials. Nobody thought that these could be increasingly scarce, more inaccessible, or that they would mean destruction in terms of pollution, destruction of the landscape and emissions of greenhouse gases, which we are paying for and will pay for over the next few decades.

It is unimaginable to think of an advanced society without modern companies that assume their backbone role and make sense of what they produce and, above all, how they produce it.
Enclave de Oliva recognizes the need to develop a model that incorporates a Social Balance and an Ecological Balance that allow us to measure the health of our company and plan management.
