GIVING MEANING TO TOMORROW

Since its creation in 1976, L'OCCITANE has firmly supported actions to benefit the community that have a real impact on the ground.

In 2006, L’OCCITANE created its Foundation to drive and bring together these initiatives. With an average annual budget of €1 million, the L'OCCITANE Foundation supports projects in two areas: helping the visually impaired throughout the world, and promoting women's entrepreneurship in Burkina Faso.

Philanthropy in Provence Back to top

PROTECTING NATURAL HERITAGE

Born in 1976 in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence region, L’OCCITANE draws inspiration from nature and the land of Provence. Olivier Baussan, founder of L'OCCITANE, has always supported and emphasized the importance of the men and women who keep this region alive through authentic, traditional practices that respect the environment.

Sponsorship in Provence supports these values, with a determination to preserve and pass down the knowledge and traditions by supporting local initiatives that aim to perpetuate knowledge and the use of plants in the Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur region.

For example, L'OCCITANE is committed to preserving PDO fine lavender from Haute-Provence, which is threatened with decline, by contributing to a grant fund aimed at finding ecological solutions to fight the disease that is destroying it.
