Corporate social responsibility

 

From the very beginning, L'OCCITANE has been a socially responsible company. The meaning and purpose of the brand are based on strong values: respect for both man and the environment, with an emphasis on exchange and sharing.

 

In 1989, beyond the Mediterranean, L'OCCITANE initiated a sustainable development program in Burkina Faso around the production of Shea butter.

 

In 1997, it introduced Braille labeling on its packaging for the first time. And in 2006, it created the first large-scale organic immortelle plantation in Corsica, to protect the integrity of the Corsican maquis.

 

Since 2006, the L’OCCITANE Foundation has enabled us to go even further. It supports three causes in particular:

- Ones that are dear to the brand and its history: literacy and support for women in developing countries,

- The fight against blindness and assistance for the visually impaired,

- And finally, the preservation of threatened traditional cultivations.
