Proud to Support Exponential Transformation
in South Africa

Real and lasting change is accelerated when social, economic, and environmental impact aligns.

At Ecolab, we are united by our purpose to make the world cleaner, safer and healthier – helping businesses succeed while protecting people and vital resources. This also means delivering exponential transformation impact in South Africa.

Whilst we have a long way to go, we are proud to support ongoing transformation efforts in South Africa which deliver real, meaningful, exponential positive change, beyond our commitment to following and upholding the best Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) practices and market standards.

Our aggressive transformation ambitions focus on empowerment, representation, skill development, preferential procurement, enterprise and supplier development, and meaningful community impact. See past examples below of exponential transformation initiatives around enterprise and supplier development and community impact.
