“ESG’s B-BBEE strategy has had a powerful impact on the expansion and improvement of business operations and we believe our new status will be a sound springboard for future growth of group companies,” says Ruth Black, human resources executive, ESG. “This evaluation involves the company’s compliance to empowerment factors identified by the DTI, which include ownership, management and control, skills development, enterprise and supplier development, as well as socio-economic development.
