Incorporating ESG Investing segments into your corporate video production is becoming increasingly essential. This article explores some references of ESG investing corporate videos we have found online.
What is ESG Investing?
ESG stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance. Investors are increasingly applying these non-financial factors as part of their analysis process to identify material risks and growth opportunities. ESG metrics are not commonly part of mandatory financial reporting, though companies are increasingly making disclosures in their annual report or in a standalone sustainability report. Numerous institutions, such as the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), and the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) are working to form standards and define materiality to facilitate incorporation of these factors into the investment process.ESG Investing and Analysis, CFA Institute
Corporate Social Responsibility Video by Vivid Snaps
Brief Description: Parkway Parade celebrates Christmas by delivering Joyful Presents to its shoppers and community. Having a Christmas celebration in the midst of the pandemic meant having to reinvent and redesign how they celebrated it with the safe distancing and safe management measures in place. However, this did not stop Parkway Parade from keeping the spirit of giving as they gave shoppers a chance to adopt a child’s wish.
Video Style: This video takes on a form of commercial as it features a talent walking around Parkway Parade as a shopper to showcase the initiatives planned by the mall such as adopting Christmas wishes and redeeming exclusive deals. It also made use of casual interviews with the children who got their wishes adopted as they thanked their “Santa Claus” and Parkway Parade.
Brief Description: Extra Space makes good use of the Christmas season to do good as part of their extraspacecares initiatives by bringing elderly from The Society for the Aged Sick out for a day at Gardens By The Bay. With elderly ranging from their 70s to their 90s, they were given a chance to spend a day out instead of in their home to see and experience things they have never.
Video Style: This video is that of an event style video with good use of interviews and b-rolls. Having an event like this, the viewer would better understand the events happening when they hear from both the organisation and the beneficiaries involved. This was also made better as the sound bites from the interview was also used along with b-roll from the event to showcase more instead of just having the soundbites during the interview which would lead to too much screen time on talking heads.
