SA’s leading assessment of progress in delivering on black economic empowerment.
In 2013 Intellidex and Empowerdex launched a new definitive ranking of the empowerment status of South Africa’s listed companies. It set the bar for the rest of the economy by showcasing the companies that have gone furthest in transforming South Africa’s business environment. To be named the most empowered company in an industry and the country is a major accolade for the companies concerned.
This year the winners will be announced at an awards dinner on 4 October 2018, with the full survey report to be published the next day in Business Report, our media partner for this project.
Two sets of overall rankings will be published, one for companies operating under the 2013 Codes of Good Practice and the second to reflect the scores of those still operating under 2007 Codes. We also rank the the most empowered companies in each industry and in each category of the BEE scorecard. This will be accompanied by editorial analysing the progress and successes of top-performing companies.
The research is undertaken by empowerment rating and research agency Empowerdex, which has been researching and ranking listed companies for over a decade. As black empowerment has become one of the major strategic challenges for South African companies, Empowerdex’s research has been decisive in measuring it.
The research studies JSE-listed companies in each sector and determines which have done best overall on the various factors that are important in empowerment: from ownership to enterprise development. The research is interpreted by the team of analysts and financial journalists at Intellidex.
