Video communication has become an essential tool for companies wishing to highlight their commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR). In this article, we explore the importance of video communication in this context, and the benefits it offers for promoting CSR within organizations.

The power of images to evoke CSR

Video is increasingly present on the Internet and with the younger generation. A report by the Global Internet Phenomena Report estimates that by 2022, 53% of Internet traffic will be linked to audiovisual media.

Videos can combine visual, auditory and emotional elements to capture the audience's attention, making them a prime tool for raising awareness of CSR issues. Whether showing images of sustainable practices, charitable initiatives or environmental projects, video helps to get the message across in a persuasive and memorable way.

By showing how it approaches CSR in innovative ways, a company can inspire other organizations to do the same. Videos can highlight creative ideas, success stories and pilot projects, offering models for others in the sector to follow.

The importance of video testimonials

The role of video is not only to inform, but also to rally the company around its CSR values and missions.

Video testimonials play an essential role in CSR communication. They give a voice to the people directly involved in the company's initiatives, be they employees, partners, customers or community members. These personal testimonials put a human face on CSR actions, highlighting individual stories and experiences that show in concrete terms how the company is making a positive impact. These videos can tell inspiring stories about transforming practices, supporting social or environmental projects, or improving living conditions. Personal testimonials create an emotional connection with the audience, reinforcing the authenticity of the company's commitment to CSR. They are also a powerful way of showing how the company's values are embodied by those who support it.

The art of storytelling in CSR videos

When communicating your CSR approach or values, talk about your challenges and difficulties.

This is what we call storytelling. It's a powerful art for captivating audiences and conveying CSR messages in a memorable way.

Instead of simply presenting raw data and facts, CSR videos can tell an engaging story: highlighting challenges, heroes, successes and transformations. Storytelling can be used to illustrate the company's journey towards sustainability, showing how it has overcome obstacles, learned from mistakes and evolved in its quest for social and environmental responsibility. Storytelling creates an emotional connection with the audience, making them feel more invested in the company's mission. Ultimately, storytelling transforms CSR into a compelling and meaningful narrative experience, leaving a lasting impression on viewers and inspiring action for a more sustainable world.

Video to support actions

According to DNA, the use of video allows us above all to build a discourse based on evidence and facts.

CSR is based on transparency and responsibility. Today's consumers are increasingly concerned about the social and environmental impact of companies.

By using video, companies can demonstrate their commitment to CSR by presenting their initiatives, actions and results. This builds trust with customers, investors and partners, showing that the company is not just talking the talk, but actually walking the walk.

The video provides a clear overview of all facets of CSR within an organization, with the transparency that is essential today.
