Our

Transformation

Journey

Card About 2@2X

Our transformation journey has been one of consistent, sustained improvement and has earned us recognition as a Level 1 Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (Level 1 BBBEE) contributor.

This rating incorporates our full value chain and includes our refinery, sales, and marketing, as well as our lubricants business.

We are incredibly proud of the milestone achievements that have helped us earn our Level 1 rating. 

In 2011, we launched a Management Programme in partnership with the University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of Business to develop future Black leaders.

In addition to various high-value skills development programmes, we have initiated a 12-month training programme for Black unemployed learners living with disabilities. They receive business administration and marketing training to create a pipeline of candidates for positions at Astron Energy and across the industry.

The programme was awarded the Chemical Industries Education and Training Authority’s Recognition for Support of People with Disabilities Award in 2016.

Our enterprise and supplier development programme is exclusive to small and medium suppliers within our value chain.  It is designed to drive sustainable growth by providing both mentorship and access to interest-free, unsecured financing, which can be used as working capital and for expansion.

The programme has been named one of the 20 biggest enterprise and supplier development programmes in the country by SMESouthafrica.co.za.

Marketer

Programme

An important aspect of our transformation journey has been our focus on updating traditional ownership models for our retail business with an innovative business model - the Astron Energy Branded Marketer Programme.

It places over 58% of our retail network in the hands of entrepreneur investors, with an average of 80% Black ownership.

This programme was specifically developed to allow for new Black entrants to participate in the petroleum retail market. These examples reflect our deep and unwavering commitment towards transformation and have helped to ensure the sustainability of our results.

Our commitment to transformation, however, goes beyond compliance as we continue to seek opportunities that drive economic prosperity, cultivate mutually beneficial business relationships, and demonstrate good business practice.
