The Low Carbon Luxury Group is a collection of 3 organisations we have created that share our desire to balance luxury, sustainability and a love of the Azores.

From the base of these 3 principles we have created brands that are authentic to the Azores and our mission of sustainable tourism.

The Ocean Azores Foundation was created in the Azores for the ocean that surrounds us. We aim to invest our resources in selected community projects that will help drive lasting social and environmental change, focusing on the protection of the waters that surround the Azores Islands. This will be achieved through multi-year partnerships and providing funding for organisations that promote marine sustainability and sustainable tourism. This work will help to increase protections for cetaceans in the region, and ensure their long term survival. The foundation will focus on funding projects that include marine conservation, reduction of plastics, and related ocean education and research.
