If the first step to solving a problem is to understand it, then KPMG’s ‘underwater audits’ of coral reef health are key to combating coral reef degeneration.

The Eco Dive project aims to collect valuable data to monitor changes in coral reef health from year to year. To achieve this, KPMG in collaboration with Reef Check Malaysia has been training and sending volunteers to conduct annual underwater coral reef surveys at selected representative sites surrounding Tioman Island since 2007, including Pirate, Soyak and Renggis reefs.

KPMG staff members who are certified divers have to undergo a rigorous training course to earn the Eco Diver certification, as well as learn the skills and knowledge to carry out reef checks.

In 2015, KPMG was awarded the Asia Responsible Entrepreneurship Award in recognition of our Eco Dive Program. The award not only continues to recognize the significance of the Eco Dive program, but serves as a reminder for KPMGians to charge on and do their part to make a difference.
