Statement of Excellence and Commitment

Our procurement and cooperation framework in our normal execution of business guides our empowerment policy. Our empowerment and procurement policies are underpinned by the following commitments:

PROCUREMENT

  • Our strong commitment to redress and socio economic empowerment of historically disadvantaged communities
  • Consciously striving, as a matter of preference, to primarily partner with other BEE companies that share the same sense of values as us in the execution of projects;
  • Continuously facilitate business ventures for other emerging Black businesses in areas that are not our focus and where we are strategically well-disposed to undertake such a facilitation process;
  • In instances where the complexity, infrastructural and track record for certain projects is a dominant feature, we would engage established strategic alliances that have demonstrable initiatives towards empowerment (as indicated by their employment equity, involvement in enhancing skills development and transfer in a particular discipline not the domain of the BEE companies); and
  • Our procurement policy shall primarily favor suppliers from the previously disadvantaged communities and/or companies that are progressive in embracing the transformation agenda of the countries in which we do business

SKILLS DEVELOPMENT

  • We shall endeavor to consciously recruit suitably qualified engineering personnel irrespective of their level of experience as part of our skills development programs
  • We commit to consciously prioritize and give preference to candidates from historically disadvantaged institutions, by providing training and mentorship opportunities within our organization
