Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment

Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) is designed to address inequalities in the workplace and to contribute to sustained economic growth, development and social transformation.

Recognising historic workplace imbalances and the need to redress such an untenable situation, Dube TradePort Corporation fully supports the B-BBEE ideal and applies its principles in its business operations, targeting initiatives for management control, employment equity, skills development, preferential procurement, enterprise development and socio-economic development. 

Dube TradePort Corporation will:

  • Ensure that its workforce is representative of KwaZulu-Natal Provincial and South African demographics in terms of race, gender and disability at all levels and that development plans are in place to achieve this objective;
  • Accelerate the involvement of Black people in operational, professional and executive decision-making, by way of focused skills development programmes;
  • Implement a targeted procurement strategy geared to increasing procurement from companies which have made significant progress in the area of B-BBEE;
  • Strive towards creating opportunities for Black entrepreneurs; and
  • Adopt a developmental and transformational approach to initiatives linked to the socio-economic development of KwaZulu-Natal’s disadvantaged communities through a comprehensive Corporate Social Investment Programme.
