A Multi-Faceted Approach to Empowerment

JB Holdings’ core business focus spans property development, mining, telecoms, oil and gas projects across Africa. Each of these sectors presents unique opportunities for empowerment, from job creation to skills development and community upliftment. The company’s commitment to BEE is not just about ticking boxes; it’s about creating a sustainable impact that transcends generations.

Employment and Skills Development

Since its inception in 2001, JB Holdings has created over 23,575 jobs. Through its various subsidiaries like JB Property Fund, JB Minerals, JB Oil, and JB Pharma, the company has not only provided employment but also invested in skills development. The Roux Shabangu Foundation, named after the company’s founder, has been instrumental in this regard, offering educational opportunities to hundreds of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Strategic Partnerships for Community Upliftment

JB Holdings understands that empowerment is not a solo endeavour. Through strategic partnerships with entities like Zion Medical BV in Israel for groundbreaking pharmaceutical research and various mining joint ventures, the company is amplifying its impact. These partnerships often result in community upliftment projects, from healthcare to education and beyond.

A Commitment to Fairness and Integrity

At the heart of JB Holdings’ empowerment initiatives is a commitment to fairness and integrity. The company’s values are not just corporate buzzwords; they are the guiding principles that ensure every project, every investment, and every partnership aligns with the broader goal of social and economic transformation.

The Road Ahead

As JB Holdings continues to expand its footprint, both in South Africa and across the African continent, its commitment to Black Economic Empowerment remains steadfast. With upcoming projects in the pipeline and a continuous focus on creating sustainable value, JB Holdings is not just investing in industries; it’s investing in the future of Africa.

In a landscape often marred by inequality and limited access to opportunities, JB Holdings stands as a beacon of what is possible through committed, ethical, and empowered business practices. It’s not just about economic growth; it’s about economic transformation, for one and all.
