Black Lite profile
Black lite (Pty) Ltd is a management consulting company that advises on integrated strategies which aim to address Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (BBBEE) and sustainable development in a value-adding manner. In addition to this, we pride ourselves in being principal investors in green energy. Black lite consulting is a 100% Black owned, managed and controlled company as per the DTI’s Codes of Good Practice. Our clients include ABSA Capital, Xstrata South Africa, Anglo American South Africa, Tsogo Sun, Sasol Limited Group, National Empowerment Fund, Kagiso Group Limited, and Department of Trade and Industry, amongst others.
Black lite consulting was established from day one on the basis of sustainable empowerment as we believe strongly leaving a world for our children and their children that is habitable and that sustainability and empowerment are two sides of the same coin. We view ourselves as being the primary drivers of this policy, not only theoretically in the form of the advisory work that we do for our clients, but most importantly we have taken a practical approach in this regard in our own business.
In our bid to reduce our carbon footprint we have taken a practical approach to sustainable empowerment in the following ways (amongst others):
We have an environmental clause in all our mandates that require meetings (where possible) not to be held during peak hour
traffic and allow staff to work flexible hours
Our office is situated in a “green” building with evaporators not individual air conditioners;
We have undertaken to plant a tree for every piece of furniture that we buy for our offices;
We do not receive our news papers delivered to the office instead we read all our newspaper publications online;
When travelling to client sites, we travel in one vehicle;
We do not print any reports or post any invoices to clients instead we e-mail them
We, at black lite, believe that a fundamental principle of an empowered business is one that not only views success through the prism of profit but also appreciates the need to focus on environmental sustainability while addressing BBBEE, transformation, climate change and renewable energy in an integrated manner.
