South African B-BBEEE & CSR practices: A barrier or competitive edge?

B-BBEE and CSR policies are key for Swedish companies operating in South Africa. Given their impact on doing business with public and gradually the private sector, it is crucial for companies to integrate these principles in their market entry and operational strategies.

This seminar will provide Swedish companies already established or preparing to setup a legal entity in the South Africa market with increased knowledge on the impact of Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment  (B-BBEE). Learn more about the “transformation initiative” that has been developed by  Business Sweden in order to support Swedish companies to comply with the policies while enhancing their competitiveness. Join us as we discuss the roadmap based on examples of initiatives from Swedish companies and organisations! 

We deliberate on the impact of B-BBEE by industry, by legal structure including equity structure, size & value of operations and supply chain.

Overview on discussion:

  • Opportunities and challenges in South Africa by sector
  • B-BBEE today: How does it impact on business investment and operations
  • A Swedish company´s approach on B-BBEE & CSR strategies
  • The objective of the Transformation Initiative

There will also be plenty of time to ask questions and to engage further under the umbrella of the Transformation Initiative. 

Who should  participate?
The seminar is open to representatives from Swedish companies already established or preparing to setup a legal entity in the South Africa market with increased knowledge on the impact of Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE).
