MVM Accreditation

Achieve MVM accreditation for your co-operative or mutual


The Mutual Value Measurement (MVM) framework has been specifically developed to assist co-ops and mutuals to consistently measure and report their positive impact on members, customers, the economy, and their communities. The framework has been rigorously field-tested and comprises a robust methodology that can be utilised by CMEs of different sizes and capabilities across various industries.

CMEs practicing MVM can apply to have their framework Accredited. Accreditation signifies to members and the community that a co-operative or mutual has successfully applied the MVM framework in accordance with its intended design.

CMEs applying for Accreditation are evaluated by an independent panel of experts. Successful applicants will have demonstrated a proficient understanding of the MVM framework, implemented appropriate metrics against the framework’s dimensions and shown that engaged measurement has been practiced.

For CMEs, Accreditation is a mark of quality, and an acknowledgment of their profound commitment to the ongoing promotion and creation of mutual value for their members and their community.

"MVM is a simple yet powerful tool which has helped our Staff, Management, Board and Members to clearly identify and articulate the unique ways we as a co-operative generate value.  Importantly, it helps ensure we take a holistic view of our mutual value and now elegantly frames our strategic plan which will maximise that value."
