Seward Co-op’s Scorecard was created in 2006 to share the effects of our business in numerous areas. The data points included demonstrate Seward Co-op’s progress in achieving its mission, or Ends Statement.

The Seward Co-op Ends Statement gives clear definition of our purpose and demands that the co-op's success be measured against the health of our community. It reads:

Seward Co-op will sustain a healthy community that has:

  • equitable economic relationships;
  • positive environmental impacts; and
  • inclusive, socially responsible practices.

JULY–SEPT. 2018 | OCT.–DEC. 2018 | JAN.–MARCH 2019 | APRIL–JUNE 2019

Two of the Scorecard’s goals are to provide a source of direction towards meeting the Ends and to increase alignment throughout the co-op, from co-op owners to the Board of Directors to the General Manager to the staff.

When Scorecard data is collected, we essentially are reviewing the co-op’s operations. The Scorecard is a living document; a dynamic measuring tool that changes over time. The Scorecard demonstrates the co-op’s values as we contribute to a healthier and more sustainable community.
