The objective of this element is to measure initiatives that contribute toward SED or to Sector Specific Programmes that promote access to the economy whereby contributions are any monetary or non-monetary contribution implemented for individuals (natural individual or group of natural individuals) or communities, where at least 75% of the beneficiaries are classified as black people in terms of race.
The challenges which this section of the scorecard seeks to address can be summarised as follows:
The majority of Black People in South Africa are still unable to access the mainstream economy owing to poverty and a lack of education.
The most critical aspect of this B-BBEE Element is that SED initiatives should result in sustainable economic participation by its intended beneficiaries and discourage dependence on hand-outs.
The indicators and weightings are as follows and in this example specific to the Generic sector:

Below is a summary of the required contributions to assist with maximising your BEE Scorecard points for the SED element.
