GEMEINWOHL ÖKONOMIE - an economic model with a future
New values for the economy
The Common Good Economy (GWÖ) is an innovative, sustainable economic model with the goal of an ethical economic culture. As an alternative to the current understanding of the economy, it is based on the values of human dignity, ecological responsibility, solidarity, social justice, democratic co-determination and transparency.
Behind the common good economy is the conviction that the pressing challenges of our time - from the scarcity of resources to the climate crisis, from the loss of biodiversity to the widening gap between rich and poor - are consequences of capitalism and can only be solved holistically and systemically. As a sustainable economic system, the common good economy offers an alternative with concrete tools.
