Larsen Lam Climate Change Foundation

Accelerating Climate Action

The Larsen Lam Climate Change Foundation (LLCCF) is a private foundation formed by Chris Larsen to back companies, organizations, projects, and technologies with great promise to help solve the climate crisis.


LLCCF works to accelerate decarbonization, scale and reduce the cost of equitable and durable carbon dioxide removal, and increase opportunities to bridge the left-right divide on climate. The foundation provides philanthropic support and for-profit investments from Chris Larsen, who is the executive chairman of Ripple’s board of directors and the former CEO and co-founder of Ripple.
