Christmas CSR Advent

The weather has turned, Christmas ads are on the telly, advent calendars have been opened and the shops are full of people frantically trying to find the best gift or the best bargain.  It’s a busy time of year but the real spirit of Christmas is cherishing peace and goodwill and giving to those less fortunate.  We love helping companies promote their CSR initiatives and show how their companies are making a difference.  We’re always inspired by the impact CSR projects have and as we prepare for the festive season and reflect on 2014, we felt compelled to tell our clients that we 'L

CSR Video Production Guide

At Purple Flame Media we work alongside companies to help them visually promote their CSR policy and communicate how they manage their business processes to produce a more positive impact on society. The use of video demonstrates that, by innovating and communicating CSR initiatives in new and exciting ways, companies can raise their profile and have more impactful CSR communications. 

Harnessing the power of video to promote CSR initiaitives

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is becoming an integral part of a successful company’s business strategy.  Regardless of whether you call it CSR, corporate responsibility, or sustainability, the common global understanding is that a company's long-term financial success goes hand in hand with its record on social responsibility, environmental stewardship and corporate ethics.

Earth Day Building For The Future

Today April 22 is Earth Day, when more than a billion people around the world will take action. From San Francisco to San Juan, Beijing to Brussels, Moscow to Marrakesh, people will plant trees, clean up their communities, contact their elected officials, and more—all on behalf of the environment. The official theme of Earth Day 2014 is Green Cities; the Green Cities campaign is focused on helping cities around the world become more sustainable and reduce their carbon footprint.

Using Video in CSR Reports

Many large corporations are publishing their 2013 CSR reports this month; it’s a great opportunity to communicate CSR objectives and progress and particularly identify key achievements over the year.  Traditionally companies have presented information about their CSR initiatives in documents such as annual reports and press releases or on a section of its official corporate website.

CSR Videos Changing Perceptions & Stereotypes

Our latest CSR films were produced for technology company Avanade to help change the perception of technology and encourage more young people to consider a career in the sector.  Whilst encouraging a wider and more diverse scope of applicants the films aim to particularly encourage girls into the industry.  We produced two films for different audiences, one for schools and one for community outreach; they were similar in terms of content but distinctly different in terms of emphasis of delivery.  Both films demonstrate the wide range of careers in the technology sector and show the variety

CSR after the Bangladesh factory tragedy

Since my last blog about the Rana Plaza factory tragedy in Bangladesh which exposed the unsafe working conditions that garment workers endure across the developing world, the disaster has led to more discussion about what behaving responsibly means.  Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is in the news headlines but what will really change after such a widely publicised tragedy?

The true price of throwaway fashion

After a building housing clothing factories collapsed in Bangladesh last week 402 people were killed, over a thousand have been injured and 149 are still missing.  Today thousands of workers holding red banners and flags took to the streets of Dhaka at the start of a series of nationwide demonstrations on what is a public holiday.

Effectively Communicating CSR Initiatives

Companies are increasingly aware of the many business benefits of managing socially responsible business processes.  A solid and well established CSR programme does more than build a strong reputation; it also has a positive influence on business profits and leads to increased chances of attracting and retaining the most talented personnel.

Making a CSR Film with a CSR Policy

Twelve years ago Purple Flame Media was created to produce humanitarian films which made a difference.  Our objective was to make creative and authentic media which inspires, informs, motivates and challenges. This ethical motivation which founded Purple Flame Media continues to drive the development of the company. We specialise in producing compelling videos for charities but we also work alongside companies to help them visually promote their csr policy and communicate how they manage their business processes to produce a more positive impact on society.
