We believe in the values shared by the international cooperative movement, namely self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity.We are democratically controlled by our members and remain independent at all times, we do not allow any discrimination, and we work with other cooperatives and our communities to promote sustainable development.

Diversity and Progress

We believe in the power of diversity. We are against any form of discrimination and we pay special attention to the disadvantaged groups in society and act actively to improve their situation to the best of our ability. We are conscious of the impact of our work on communities, neighbourhoods and the environment, and we try to minimise these impacts and invite all those affected to participate in our work.

We believe in the power of progress. We believe that we deserve and must have a better world than the one we have today, and everything we do is aimed at achieving that vision.

Responsible Journalism

We take our journalistic work very seriously. Each of our projects has its editorial code, and, in general, we do our best to ensure that our news media projects are run honestly, transparently and responsibly.

At present, we informally adhere to the editorial code of the Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO) and will endeavour to become part of it in due course. We take our mistakes seriously and correct them responsibly. Each of our news media projects has its own complaints policy.
