Information about the above
Sun International’s E&SD Programme contributes by:
supporting the introduction and development of black-owned Small Medium Micro Enterprise (SMME) businesses in our supply chain
offering business opportunities to qualifying E&SD beneficiaries where possible
focusing on the sustainability of the beneficiaries within the programme
supporting the objective of the National Development Plan (NDP) 2030
supporting strategic category management plans
using E&SD funds to achieve meaningful value within the communities within which we operate.
We have been fortunate to be recognized for our efforts to create a meaningful contribution to
the development of previously disadvantaged SMMEs through a number of awards.
Through our E&SD programme, we identify and assist sustainable startup businesses at our
various properties. Assistance is provided in many ways, be it capital facilitated at interest free
rates and repayable over viable periods; managerial skills transfer; mentorship; financial expertise
or rent free offices, and many other areas of assistance.
Invariably the business identified will begin work at one of the Sun International properties,
providing a defined service, but as the business flourishes, the scope of expansion lies at other
properties and outside the Sun International Group too.
The objective of the Enterprise Development programme is to create a solid business base for
entrepreneurial people and in turn create further employment.
