Nonkqubela Maliza, Director of Corporate and Government Affairs at Volkswagen Group South Africamade the announcement today, saying the rating by an independent agency was the result of the company’s on-going commitment, detailed planning and systematic implementation over the past five years.

Maliza said while the formal Codes of Good Practice of B-BBEE and the scorecard system had been introduced in 2007,Volkswagen Group South Africa’s track record of investment in skills and talent development and in community development predates that by a long way.
The company’s total B-BBEEscore has improved by 1.6% from 65.8 points to 66.88points overallreinstating that Volkswagen Group South Africa is 100% B-BBEE compliant with steady improvements recorded in management control, preferential procurement, and employment equity.
