OUR B-BBEE STATUS

COMMITTED TO EMPOWERMENT

At Edge Growth, we embrace both the spirit and the letter of the B-BBEE codes and have adopted a holistic approach in terms of transformation. We are embedding empowerment at every level of the organisation and in everything we do.

As part of our commitment to enabling empowerment in everything we do, we are proud to be a Black Owned,   Level 2, Enterprise & Supplier Development Beneficiary.


How our Score was Achieved

This score was awarded to Edge Growth on the basis that it is an empowering supplier through its three entities and is now under majority black ownership of 51.88 percent, applying the FLOW THROUGH PRINCIPLE method.

Our equity shareholders include African Rainbow Capital (Pty) Ltd, Jayesh Nair and our Edge Growth Employee Share Ownership (ESOP) Trust that benefits top black performers at the company.

Even though we qualify for automatic recognition, because of our ownership status, we believe in the spirit of the BEE Codes and we are therefore ensuring that we are complying with the requirements of the Generic scorecard as well.

We were very proud to welcome African Rainbow Capital recently as new shareholder to the business and we will continue to seek more ways to extend our impact on empowerment, both through ESD and black economic empowerment.
