Construction Charter

The Aveng Group regards its responsibility to help bring about the empowerment of previously disadvantaged South Africans as integral to being a truly South African company. The group endorses government-led initiatives in this arena and wholeheartedly supports the development of the construction sector charter. The objectives of the construction sector charter reflected below are closely aligned to those of the Aveng Group.

  • The transformation and growth of the sector;
  • The improvement in the competitiveness and efficiency of the sector;
  • The aim to achieve a substantial change in the racial and gender composition of the ownership, control and management within the sector;
  • To address the critical skills shortage and skills development with a specific focus on women;
  • To enhance entrepreneurial development and sustainable development of Black Economic Empowered (BEE) Small, Medium and Micro Enterprise (SMME) construction companies through strategic partnerships;
  • To bring an end to the malpractice of fronting in the industry.
  • Objectives are aimed at promoting a vibrant, competitive and sustainable construction sector in South Africa.

The construction sector charter was signed by all industry stakeholders and the Minister of Public Works, the late Ms Stella Sigcau on 17 March 2006.
