This has been achieved through placing emphasis on Company Policies specifically directed towards the
promotion of BEE and transfer of skills through various initiatives, such empowerment spending targets,
skills development programs, job training programs as well as community participation on all our
projects. Etilweni Projects has a proven record in the implementation of these initiatives achieved
through hard work over the years. All our engineers are part of a mentorship program that is driven by
the Company’s Technical Director to assist our engineers to achieve professional registration.

Employment Equity Plan
In accordance with our company’s Employment Equity Plan and Transformation strategy, 90% of
Blackhead Consulting workforce consists of individuals from previously disadvantaged backgrounds.

Procurement Policy
Etilweni Projects has adopted a biased procurement policy that the company uses to source material
and equipment from black owned small, medium and micro sized enterprises (SMME) to encourage and
stimulate economic activity amongst small businesses especially amongst the communities in which we

Blackhead recognises and is committed to encourage entrepreneurship for as many stakeholders as
possible. These policies greatly enhance the sustainability of our operations and contribute towards the
overall growth of South Africa.
