We are committed to providing fair and equitable access
Smart Technology Centre (Pty) Ltd is currently a Level 2 B-BBEE contributor (2017) and complies with all statutory broad-based black economic empowerment requirements as stipulated in the Codes of Good Practice, while maintaining the highest levels of staff competence.
We are committed to providing fair and equitable access to training opportunities for all our employees and have set ambitious targets to increase our B-BBEE representation even further through a robust Workplace Skills plan.
Our preferential procurement policy gives specific preference to B-BBEE compliant enterprises, SMMEs as well as black-owned enterprises. Smart Technology Centre continuously measures the B-BBEE status of all its suppliers and encourages and supports suppliers to improve their own B-BBEE scorecard.
We love our brand, our values and most of all, we love what we do. To help spread a bit of this magic, we are committed to making a positive difference in our communities. We sponsor worthy causes, initiatives and like-minded individuals who want to make a difference.
We support our community, brand ambassadors and promote the spirit of entrepreneurship to help build a better South Africa. We also like to reward those who promote our brand and help us spread the word about how awesome Smart Technology Centre is, after all, that is how we have grown.
The bulk of our corporate social investment is allocated towards initiatives that benefit and uplift our communities.
The Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) is dedicated to conserving threatened species and ecosystems in Southern Africa to the benefit of all people. Specifically, our focus has been on contributing towards the Carnivore Conservation Programme (CCP) with special emphasis on those aspects that will improve the conservation status of endangered Wild Dogs.
Our collaboration with the TechSoup South Africa Technology Donation Programme has helped assist Non-profit Organisations (NPOs), Non-profit Companies (NPC) and Public Benefit Organisations (PBOs) to register, and gain access to donated technology products from Microsoft and Adobe. To date these include The Cyril Ramaphosa Foundation Trust, Adopt-a-School, Shanduka Black Umbrellas and Kagiso Shanduka Trust.
We also applied our minds to focus on our own strengths, technology platforms and awesome team to see where else we can help others achieve great things. We offer limited sponsorships in the way of free-hosted services such as DSL data, web hosting and hosted email services for non-profit organisations, or community programs that have social upliftment value. Each application is assessed based on merits, and the duration of sponsorship determined based on each application received.
We do our part to ensure we remain responsible in our environment, in line with the National Waste Management Act of 2009. Our business model and operations are designed to maintain a technology footprint that has a low carbon copy, and ensures that responsible e-Waste disposal practices are used. We also subscribe to the HP Planet Partners programme for the safe disposal of ink and toner cartridges.
We are also committed to educating our customers to recycle responsibly and reduce the flow of recyclable and hazardous electronic waste into landfills.
We can help guide you on how to recycle, donate or destroy your unwanted e-waste. Let us help you:
● Facilitate the collection and compliant disposal of all your old e-waste.
● Ensure the goods are broken down into components for recycling or reuse.
● Ensure you are issued a certificate of compliant disposal.
