The B-BBEE Commission's Values

Our operational environment presents various challenges for us, and this include lack of proper corporate governance, fronting tendencies, falsification of empowering credentials, misrepresentation of facts to secure contracts and quick fix solutions to empowerment, all of which present a fertile ground for unethical conduct in and outside the public sector.
