ACOME is the largest cooperative and participatory company (French: SCOP) in France.
Cooperative governance safeguards our long-term strategy to guarantee the company’s sustainability. At our foundation lies a model of corporate democracy, in which each employee-partner can exercise his or her right to vote at general meetings (1 person = 1 vote).
This cooperative status is the foundation of ACOME’s identity, and the company ensures that its values are upheld in its subsidiaries.
ACOME’s Board of Directors consists of 12 members, all employee-partners in the SCOP. The directors are elected for four years and represent all partners.
The Board of Directors determines the strategic direction, the general policies, the investment and research programme, and the budget.
