Empowerment and Transformation

Given the history of South Africa, Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) is an imperative initiative by Government designed to address the imbalances of the past. Accordingly, the black economic empowerment legal framework has been strictly sectorised. Many industries have sector-specific codes of good practice or charters (sector codes), issued under the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Act 2013. Each of the sector codes have their own particularities and unique targets which entities in those industries should endeavour to achieve in order to score maximum points for BEE when measured in terms of the relevant sector code.
