Our South Africa Energy Coal (SAEC) operation recently donated two water bowsers worth R2.5M to a local plant hire company formed by members of the Phola community.

Aimed at helping community enterprises to participate in local economy, the bowsers were recently handed over to GOMPPS Enterprise at a ceremony in Middelburg as part of SAEC’s ongoing Social and Labour Plan commitment.

Enterprise and Supplier Development (ESD) is part of the South African government's BBB-EE strategy to eliminate poverty and support community enterprise.

ESD plays an essential role in ensuring local businesses are supported to become sustainable and provide ongoing employment opportunities.

Over the years, our involvement in ESD has been instrumental in growing several black owned companies from small enterprises to companies with a turnover of more than R50M per annum.
