One of 10 global sustainable finance leaders featured in Euromoney, Hervé Duteil talks social impact, mindsets and leadership – and how BNP Paribas is setting the agenda.


Hervé Duteil, Chief Sustainability Officer at BNP Paribas Americas is profiled in Euromoney Magazine's champions of global impact banking feature. He explains how adapting his trading experience helped to grow the sustainable finance movement in the Americas.

This included establishing training programs aimed at embedding sustainability perspectives into the business decisions of banking teams. He was also instrumental in a recent Social Impact Bond for Connecticut, in which financial returns are linked to the success of a social community programme.

"Sustainability leadership "requires courage and creativity. This is what we have to aim for as an industry if we truly want to solve the world's most pressing challenges.""
Hervé Duteil

As part of Euromoney's wider impact banking series, the magazine also featured an article exploring the role of leadership in accelerating sustainable finance. BNP Paribas Group CEO Jean Laurent Bonnafé commented: "The way you run a bank must fit within the society in which it operates".
