DLM is committed to real empowerment within our own environment as well as our wider community. Our rating has been maintained through the implementation of our stated policy to pursue and achieve, over a period of time, the following: 


  • Empowerment shareholding and management.

  • A staff composition that closer reflects the broader composition of society.

  • The continual growth of our people by developing their potential through training and skills development as well as career path mentoring.

  • Procurement practices that assist in reaching empowerment objectives.

  • The development of sustainable black enterprises. 

  • Social upliftment.



  • We entered into an empowerment deal with Shalamuka Capital (Pty) Ltd. Shalamuka Capital is a Broad Based BEE private equity company for the Shalamuka Foundation. They acquired 28.6 % of DLM.

  • Using the flow-through principle, DLM was audited as being a 44.08% black owned and 21.59% black women owned company.

  • Over 30% of DLM’s top management is black. We have a mentoring programme in place in order to fast track the progress of black employees and to ensure that our people are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge before they are promoted into managerial positions. 


  • DLM has “adopted" a number of child development and disabled persons centers where food supplies and groceries are delivered on a monthly basis. Further, our staff members are encouraged to donate clothing, toys and educational items which are delivered along with the groceries. 

  • We have prioritized education and skills development to ensure that previously disadvantaged youth have the opportunity to participate in the economy through internship programmes. To date we have assisted a number of previously disadvantaged individuals with registration fees, tuition fees, book allowances and work experience.
