Paul Testard has been involved in the development of international impact projects for 12 years, mainly in South East Asia and Africa. In particular, he began his career at Lafarge by launching the Group's very first "affordable housing" project in Indonesia in 2011.
A committed player in international cooperation, he has gradually developed in-depth knowledge of social innovation and the circular economy. He has worked in multinational companies, SMEs and the non-profit sector, giving him a cross-disciplinary understanding of these issues.
In 2018, Paul shifted his focus to the waste sector, with the aim of helping to build sustainable solutions in West Africa. In 2020, he initiated the strategic overhaul and international development of the NGO Moi Jeu Tri, a pioneer in environmental education issues in Africa. Since then, he has been its General Delegate, managing a team of over 30 collaborators in 3 countries.
Alongside his work, Paul continues to be passionate about access to essential services, carrying out consultancy assignments for companies such as Veolia on access to drinking water in emerging countries. He is also a member of the board of start-up Green Cityzen, an IoT reference in the environmental sector.
Paul occasionally lectures on these topics at business schools (HEC).
