A European press cooperative that belongs to its staff and its readers

Voxeurop is the first media outlet to be managed by a European cooperative society. It is owned by shareholders in 23 countries, organised into 5 categories. Readers who wish to support the project are grouped in the "beneficiaries" category. Only members of Voxeurop (see here) can become shareholders (Article 10 of our Articles of Association). French tax residents benefit from a tax deduction.

An independent newsroom

Voxeurop is managed by its Executive Board, which implements the strategy approved by General Meetings. The Executive Board is overseen by a Supervisory Board, half of whose members are journalists and press translators. This arrangement is designed to strengthen the independence of Voxeurop's editors. Voxeurop SCE is an "entreprise solidaire de presse d'information" (ESPI), a status created in 2015 in France to bolster independent media. We go even further by ploughing all our profits back into the company. Shareholders therefore receive no dividends.
