The Spira Gi group chose as its legal form that of the Social Cooperative Enterprise. The form of Social Cooperative or Social Cooperative Enterprise (Coin.S.Ep) is a new legal possibility in Greece introduced by law 4019/11. Coin.S.Ep is the main body of the Social Economy, i.e. the space that lies between the public and the private sector, the one that is usually called the third sector of the economy. In addition to the K.S.Ep, many other organizations are active in this area, such as associations and unions, cooperatives and networks, non-governmental organizations, etc. with the basic characteristic that they are grassroots ventures of civil society. The basic principles of a Social Cooperative Enterprise are the group - cooperative that establishes and operates it, its social character and purpose, its viability as an economic but non-profit unit. These businesses are created and registered/published in the Social Economy Register of the Ministry of Labour, Social Security and Welfare. We aim to promote local and collective interest, to promote employment, to strengthen social cohesion and local or regional development.
