The L’Occitane Foundation has set itself the priority of fighting avoidable blindness – its main field of action.
The L’OCCITANE Foundation was created in 2006 to drive and bring together the actions of public interest in which L’OCCITANE had already been involved since its beginning in 1976. In 1997, L’OCCITANE printed products labels in braille for the first time. Since then, the prevention of sight impairment has become a priority for the Group. In 2016 it created UNION FOR VISION 10by20 – an international program dedicated to sight, which gathers the different initiatives of L’OCCITANE worldwide and sets a new goal: to reach 10 million beneficiaries of eye care by 2020.
The Foundation also encourages L’OCCITANE subsidiaries worldwide to support the fight against avoidable blindness. Paying close attention to their commitment, the latter take action and present each year more than twenty projects with local partners. These projects are co-financed by the subsidiaries and by the L’OCCITANE Foundation. Today, more than 5 million people have received eye care all around the world to maintain of restore their sight thanks to our actions.
