French bank Société Générale has appointed Paul-Antoine Thiebot as its head of sustainable and positive impact finance for the Asia-Pacific region, replacing Yasmine Djeddai, who is taking on a new position within the group.

In his new role, Thiebot will play an integral role in supporting origination and structuring of sustainable finance products, ensuring strong alignment with the bank’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) targets, and scaling up impact-based solutions while promoting ESG advisory services to support its clients’ sustainability journey.

Based in Singapore, he reports locally to Eliza Ng, head of global banking and advisory for Southeast Asia, regionally to Stephanie Clement de Givry, head of global banking and advisory for Asia-Pacific, and functionally to Eric Bonnin, global head of sustainable and positive impact finance solutions.

Thiebot has over 16 years of experience in energy financing and advisory. He began his career at the bank in 2007 in the energy project finance team in Hong Kong and then relocated to London in 2015 where he strengthened the bank’s position in the offshore wind sector.

He has played a leading role on numerous advisory and arranging mandates for oil and gas and renewable projects, including multi-billion transactions, to support strategic clients of the bank across the Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Asia-Pacific regions. In 2023, he moved to Singapore to take up a new role as director of energy transition and sustainable finance for Asia-Pacific.

The bank, it notes, “has placed its ESG ambitions at the heart of its strategy and has announced a series of major initiatives to accelerate its contribution to the environmental transition and create more positive impact for economies and societies.”
