Unkobon works on affordable rates for water and electricity through dialogue
deal with relevant parties such as Water and energy company Bonaire (WEB),
Government Bonaire (OLB) and the ministries of I&W and EZK.
The introduction of a rental point system will have a moderating effect on rents
of simple houses. Unkobon calls for a rental subsidy system that also applies
for private sector houses.
By the BonKompra agreement between OLB, the association of Supermarkets and the
consumer organizations on Bonaire in 2014, a basket of 36 products in 18 out of 20
participating supermarkets are on average 24% cheaper. Unkobon wants BonKompra back!

Frequently asked questions
Who are we and what do we do?
Why a Consumers' Association on Bonaire?
Many people on Bonaire do not know exactly what they are entitled to as a consumer. The Consumers’ Association provides members with information about their rights.
Unfortunately, the level of legal consumer protection on Bonaire is not what people are used to in the European part of the Netherlands. This makes joining forces even more necessary to strengthen the position of the consumer on this island.
What does Unkobon do?
The Association’s work is carried out by volunteers. In this way we make use of the knowledge available in the association. For example, knowledge in the field of legal affairs, technical affairs or financial affairs.
