CLN Group operations in South Africa are required to formally submit an Employment Equity plan to the authorities to comply with the Employment Equity Act No55 of 1998. South African Companies are required to submit to audits to gauge compliance with Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment (BBBEE). BBBEE is a programme launched by the South African government to address inequalities by encouraging businesses to integrate previously disadvantaged people in the workspace and support black businesses. MA South Africa’s customers have a target for their suppliers to be at least at Level 4 to support the BBBEE programme. During the first semester of 2022, MA South Africa was subjected to a new certification by Sanas, the BBBEE Verification Agency, and achieved a Level 2, which was a very good result, and an improvement from the Level 3 which was achieved in the previous certification.
