a) products, production processes,
b) the people involved and their companies as well as their living conditions,
c) the meaning of (“Sinn”) and the responsibility for the success of common actions.
Additionally, an association may also deal with and decide on investments, credits and voluntary contributions. The individual actor decides autonomously and freely on its entry into a contractual associative involvement. The framework is set by legal provisions, in particular competition and antitrust laws, to which the parties involved must adhere.
An associative interaction between production, retail and consumption is put in motion as a free initiative between the actors directly involved. There is no external supervisory authority. The principle of self-declaration applies. The associative agreement will be documented for information and visibility purposes for all direct partners as well as for the Charter Community as a whole. For the time being, the Economy Council is the forum for meeting and reporting. The Economy Council will run an office for the Charter Community which coordinates and supports the associative projects. The community and the issue will be represented at the IBCD.
The associative work can and shall be communicated. Communication based on the Charter will be made transparent to the Community in advance. In Luxembourg a corresponding label is already registered and in use. In the future, the logo shall be free to use for the Charter Community without ruling out the possibility that it might be adjusted or that a new logo might be created.
This Charter states the framework and the guiding principles for the members of the Charter Community. The realisation on site remains individual. The Charter Community is the coalition of all independent associative projects.
