JG Afrika has achieved a Level 1 Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) rating, reaffirming it as one of the leading engineering and environmental consultancy’s commitment to transformation in South Africa.
MD Paul Olivier says that “while transformation ensures companies remain competitive in the current procurement environment when bidding for public-sector projects, this is not the primary reason for the constant change under way at the firm”.
“Reputable industry participants understand that transformation is essential to address the imbalances of the past, and this will always be the primary driver behind our transformation strategy. Moreover, real change in the industry will ensure the sustainability of the firm and the professions by developing the next generation of engineers and environmental scientists,” Olivier says.
JG Afrika’s commitment to inclusive economic growth is also demonstrated by its 51% empowerment shareholding.
Currently celebrating its 95th year, this wholly-owned South African company has built a strong reputation for offering the continent quality and sustainable engineering and environmental consulting services.
The firm continues to progress and evolve, keeping pace with fluctuations in demand, the industry and customer requirements.
Olivier concludes that JG Afrika is proud to be part of the meaningful change that the engineering profession continues to undergo.
