What you need to know about BBB-EE

The Black Economic Empowerment Act (B-BBEE) was enacted as way to formally incentivize corporations to contribute to black economic empowerment in South Africa. The fundamental objective of the Act is to advance economic transformation and enhance the economic participation of black people in the South African economy. Compliance with B-BBEE can include partial or majority black ownership, hiring black employees, or contracting with black-owned suppliers. Companies are also required to track and report yearly on their B-BBEE compliance criteria. In turn, these companies are given a B-BBEE score that rates their level of compliance.
