PADI CSR

Poni Divers striving for corporate social responsibility

What is CSR?

Corporate social responsibility is the term used to describe the way that a business takes into account the financial, environmental and social impacts of decisions and actions it is involved in. It is an increasingly important issue in business, as managers, consumers, investors and employees have begun to understand how economic growth is linked to social and environmental well-being.

Following the Pillars of Change

Poni Divers is committed to supporting social and environmental efforts through PADI's Pillars of Change, designed to empower divers with information to get involved with causes they care about in tangible ways. While remaining dedicated to safe and responsible diver education, PADI aims to make a significant impact on key issues facing the dive industry – and the entire planet.

A healthy ocean is critical for humanity as a whole. Learn how PADI is taking steps to help manage this vital resource and how you can be part of solutions that impact the health of our water planet.

Issues PADI is focused on: Combating Marine Debris + Plastic Pollution, Establishing Marine Protected Areas, Coral Reef Recovery and Restoration

Earth’s oceans contain nearly 200,000 identified species, but actual numbers may be in the millions. Protecting marine life biodiversity is critical to their survival and ours. By supporting organizations that work to implement protection laws, enact legislation and educate the public, PADI hopes to help establish balance in our aquatic ecosystems.

Issues PADI is focused on: Protection of Sharks and Rays, Ghost Fishing Gear Removal, Sustainable Dive Tourism

People + Community

By providing more educational opportunities for people around the world to become PADI Professionals, and in turn teach the world to safely explore underwater, PADI can help foster prosperity, growth and a sustainability mindset in dive communities around the world.

Many people have found hope for their futures through their journeys of becoming divers. PADI aims to help others find similar personal transformation and healing, both mentally and physically, through PADI’s Adaptive Techniques Specialty course, as well as access to information platforms and stories of triumph over adversity, illness and hardships that testify to diving’s healing power.

Poni's self-deprecating approach to evaluate its CSR

Over the years, Poni Divers have proven that they uphold the values of strong corporate citizenship. One of their missions is of caring for the community by participating in public welfare and promoting scuba related activities to different levels in the society. They are also involved with Youth Organizations, Conservation initiatives and other non-profit organizations. We are always evaluating our impact and approach to the sustainability and although we are trying our best we always have to adopt to the socio-economic situations in order to stay profitable.
