BEEE Policy

IPM supports the principles of Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment and exudes a passion for creating sustainable opportunities for underprivileged South Africans.

IPM is wholeheartedly committed to the principles of BBBEE and is currently a Level 4 BEE contributor. IPM is currently in the process of restructuring to obtain a Level 2 BBBEE accreditation.

Through its BBBEE policy, IPM endeavors to achieve the following objectives:

  • Empower previously disadvantaged individuals to develop their knowledge and skills through an accelerated growth path to reach top management level.
  • To continuously monitor the racial composition of ownership and management structures to ensure compliance. The primary focus is placed on previously disadvantaged females.
  • Assist in the development of the operational and financial capacity of BBBEE enterprises, especially small, medium and micro enterprises (SMMEs) and black-owned enterprises.
  • Develop the skills and knowledge of previously disadvantaged individuals through IPMs learnership and mentorship program and internal and external training.
  • Set up proper preferential procurement policies to ensure that black-owned enterprises benefit.


IPM encourages every employee to develop their own skills through internal and external training programs and to actively educate themselves through internal mentorship programs. In an industry where technically skilled and qualified PDIs are especially scarce, IPM is proud to declare that a substantial component of its senior staff and managers are compliant with South Africa’s policies.
