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.
Diving Adventure was founded by Stephen Au in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong in 1998.
5 years later in 2003, they became a PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centre and in 2009 were awarded as a PADI Five Star Career Development Centre.
Over the years, Diving Adventure 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.

In the past, they have provided scuba experience programs and educational events for International Association Hand in Hand Divers (IAHD), Industrial Evangelistic Fellowship, YMCA, The Neighbourhood Advice-Action Council and The Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs Association of Hong Kong.
