His expertise deepened through roles as a Carbon Commercial Analyst at Eneco and as a Sustainable Risk Advisor at ABN AMRO Bank in the Netherlands. During this time, he seamlessly integrated climate risk metrics into customer profiling, enhancing the financial sector’s awareness of sustainability.
Upon his return to Bangkok, Boonrod assumed a pivotal role at Engie Asia, identifying and structuring carbon credits and clean energy projects across several Asian countries. His accomplishments culminated in spearheading the USAID Clean Power Asia program, a multi-million-dollar initiative to bolster renewable energy in the Mekong region. Through his leadership at the USAID regional Private Financing Advisory Network-Asia (PFAN), Boonrod further cemented his reputation as an expert in mobilizing investment in clean energy initiatives, especially in Southeast Asia.
