Nature is L’OCCITANE’s main inspiration. Founded in 1976 in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence region, L’OCCITANE has always been committed to protecting the natural heritage of Provence and the Mediterranean.
In line with the brand's values and origins, the L’OCCITANE Foundation supports local initiatives that aim to promote Provence’s land, traditions and know-how, share knowledge about natural plant heritage, and protect threatened varieties and ecosystems.
However, the Foundation’s engagement is not limited to preserving Provence’s flora, but also aims to raise awareness of endangered ecosystems. For example, the Foundation is working in partnership with the International Union for Conservation of Nature to make a red list of ecosystems at risk. Since 2015, 31 Mediterranean ecosystems have been listed to help regional authorities develop conservation projects.
In 2019, the L’OCCITANE Foundation took its commitment to biodiversity internationally and new projects are being agreed.
