BBBEE – LEVEL 1 (51.4% BLACK OWNERSHIP, 30.84% BLACK FEMALE OWNERSHIP AND EMPOWERING SUPPLIER)
BBBEE was legislated to redress some of the inequality and injustices wrought by apartheid. Through promoting the economic upliftment of black citizens, the policy works to uplift broader society – bringing about much-needed socio-economic transformation. It encourages the hiring of black employees and the conducting of business with companies that are black-owned and or making efforts to promote real equality (which necessitates the implementation of equity measures).
We are all painfully aware that under apartheid, race was used to, as the Act explains, control access to the country’s productive resources and skills, and unfortunately the economy still excludes the majority of people from them. This has negative ramifications on the performance of the South African economy – broader, meaningful participation is needed from a greater number of citizens to strengthen our markets. BBBEE aims to facilitate this.
To this end, the BBBEE Act encourages increases in the participation of black people (defined broadly to include Africans, Indians and Coloureds) across all levels in businesses, as well as the empowerment of suppliers. The BBBEE scorecard calculates the rating of a business by looking at the efforts it is making in the areas of ownership, management control (including Employment Equity), skills development, enterprise and supplier development, and socio-economic development. A high score rewards a business with access to government tenders and the lucrative chain of preferential procurement.
BBBEE is a necessary element in the positive socio-economic transformation of the country; it is important to remember that it is not about the empowerment of one group of people at the expense of another. It is about increasing the economic participation of previously disadvantaged groups to benefit all.
