AEEI is aware of and appreciates the evolution of governance and that the Group’s core purpose, business model, performance, risks, opportunities and sustainable development are inseparable elements of the value-creation process. The Group is aware that the responsibility and accountability, in addition to producing solid financial results, of business leaders include managing the Company’s environmental and social impact, as well as addressing the expectations of stakeholders, including regulators, investors, customers and employees.
The Group continually strives to meet and exceed the benchmarks set by the Broad-based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) Codes of Good Practice, and in light of this, its initiatives include corporate social investment in different areas and fields. These include skills development, enterprise and supplier development, as well as ensuring that employment equity structures and programmes are in place within the Group.
