PURPOSEFUL EMPOWERMENT
Inculcating entrepreneurship and increasing participation
Itec is committed to broad-based black economic empowerment (BB-BEE) as a means of redressing the historic economic imbalances in South Africa. We are currently accredited as a Level 4 contributor to BB-BEE. Itec is actively contributing to the changing business landscape and driving government’s black economic empowerment (BEE) objectives. We’ve implemented an effective and holistic BEE policy that comprises identifying, developing and promoting the sustainability of BEE. Our ultimate goal is to foster entrepreneurship in black communities and increase the participation of previously disadvantaged South Africans in the mainstream of the ICT industry. We have forged a close partnership with ikamva labantu as our strategic BB-BEE partner. ikamva labantu is a selfreliant, sustainable community based organisation facilitating positive social change. ikamva labantu holds a 50.1% stake in Itec Holdings and works closely with us to spur entrepreneurship in poor communities and to uplift previously disadvantaged people. We chose ikamva labantu as our equity partner because it is a broad-based organisation that disburses funds to a wide variety of needy South African people and organisations. Equity ownership is but one element of our BB-BEE strategy – we are equally committed to the other pillars of empowerment such as management control, employment equity, skills development and training, preferential procurement and corporate social investment.

Black economic empowerment (BEE) is not simply a moral initiative to redress the issues of the past. It is a realistic and practical growth strategy that aims to realise the country’s full economic potential.

MINIMUM IMPACT, MAXIMUM BENEFIT
Itec’s commitment to community
We believe that the growth of our company should benefit the communities we do business in, the country’s previously disadvantaged people, and South Africa’s economy as a whole. We also believe deeply in the importance of minimising the impact of our operations on the country’s natural environment. We drive a range of corporate social investment programmes in partnership with ikamva labantu which works with various community-based organisations that help people in need. These programmes are interlinked to ensure that the critical needs of the communities served are adequately met. To ensure environmental sustainability, we work closely with our clients to help them recycle equipment and consumables, minimise the use of paper and consumables, and choose the most environmentally sound solutions on the market. Within our own business, we recycle all office waste that can be recycled and dispose of obsolete equipment in an environmentally sound manner. We partner with suppliers who share our commitment to sustainable use of the planet’s resources.

Itec embraces its responsibility to help meet the challenge in the hope of creating a brighter future.

BEST OF BOTH
Think globally, act locally
Sustainability is not merely a byword of corporate social responsibility. It’s good for business! It drives innovation, inspires employees and shareholders, and helps companies operate more efficiently and reduce their costs. Itec recognises that it has an impact on the environment, both directly through the running of its offices and indirectly through meeting the business needs of its clients. The company’s environmental strategy is to reduce the environmental impact of its operations and the equipment supplied to customers. Itec has partnered with impactChoice to be the first office automation vendor in South Africa to offer clients a carbon offset programme based on micro-certificates that are fully auditable. Every Itec partner countrywide will now be able to help its clients to offset their carbon footprint of their office automation environments.
