What is broad-based black economic empowerment?

Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (BBBEE) is the South African government’s policy to encourage black participation in the economy to redress historical inequality in the country.

Businesses trading in South Africa are assessed according to their size, sector, ownership, employment equity and development spend, and allocated a BBBEE rating based on this calculation. This rating improves a business’ desirability as a supplier of good and services.

As an economic policy, it is administered through the BBBEE Codes of Good Practice and through a number of sector-specific government gazettes.
