Our vital work to preserve and protect biodiversity

Biodiversity and its benefits are fundamental to human well-being and a healthy planet – however, the world is facing a biodiversity extinction crisis, and positive action is of the upmost importance. L’OCCITANE Group has been working for more than 40 years to preserve and restore nature. Our dedicated team – which has previously focused on the L’OCCITANE en Provence and Melvita brands – takes care of sourcing ingredients and have been working on local biodiversity projects for decades.  Today, we share our knowledge, expertise, and ambitions with all our brands as we work to align our methods, hit global targets, and launch new projects in the years ahead.  

Our approach involves several key strategies to address our impact on nature. These include implementing nature-based solutions by connecting climate, biodiversity, and the social benefits, responsibly sourcing raw materials and restoring eco-systems, advocating for sustainable practices, and collaborating with stakeholders. 

Our ambition? To contribute to a nature positive world by taking action across our value chain, transforming our own eco-system and protecting our shared planet.
