JPMorgan Chase & Co. hired Ben Ratner from the Environmental Defense Fund to help advise banking clients on lowering their carbon footprint to combat climate change. 

Ratner joined the firm’s Washington, D.C. office Monday as an executive director, reporting to global head of sustainability Marisa Buchanan, according to the New York-based bank. He spent almost a decade at EDF, where he was most recently an associate vice president who led a team that worked with investors and energy companies to cut their greenhouse gas emissions.
