PSS Transitions To New Greener Training Agency


Professional Scuba Schools Worldwide has announced that it will begin its transition to a greener training agency in 2023.

The move to a more sustainable format has several initiatives, including:

  • Moving all production, distribution, and sourcing of dive training materials to a more sustainable footing.
  • Eliminating plastic dive slates, tables, and paper logbooks and certificates.
  • The creation of a digital environment for logbooks, C-cards, and materials.

According to the PSS President Giuseppe Minopoli:

“For nearly two decades, all of our research shows that divers really prefer digital. So, our goal is to ensure the people, communities, and environments touched by PSS are left better off from their connection to us.”

He added:

“A truly sustainable company is more concerned about its impact than its profits. We would like to eventually go 100% digital but know that will require support for dive centers, training agencies, and governments around the globe. Hopefully, we can be a catalyst for this change. Since its inception, PSS has been the training support leader to the Green Fins initiative. We have long believed that protecting our underwater environment is one of the most important roles training agencies can play in the education and development of divers and dive leaders.”
