ARGEN is committed to applying the principles underlying Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) legislation. SizweNtsalubaGobodo (SNG) recently acquired a significant shareholding in ARGEN. This makes ARGEN a black owned company with a B-BBEE level 2 rating in terms of the BEE Codes of Good Practice that were promulgated by the Department of Trade and Industry. As a value-add supplier, clients can claim 125% of our fees as contribution to their own procurement scores.
We at ARGEN place great value on education. Hence, we make annual donations to non-profit organisations for providing bursaries that assist students from disadvantaged communities to obtain tertiary education.
Our company’s procurement policy is structured to encourage entrepreneurship by channelling purchases through smaller firms.
It is our policy to be actively involved in the upliftment of the community. Aside from our social investment, enterprise development and training commitments, each of our employees spends at least one day a year on an appropriate project that benefits the wider community.
