Hello I am new here, I need you regarding a montage that I have to make. I have an input PWM signal which varies from 0 to + 15V. I have to find an electronic assembly in order to obtain at output a PWM signal varying from 0 to -10V. I have a -10V power supply. However, I have the constraint of only use bipolar transistors. Did you know a montage allowing me to do this? thanks in advance

Your post is ambiguous.
Are you referring to the variation in the PWM duty-cycle or the variation in its averaged DC voltage?

For the former you could use a PNP transistor.
For the latter, you could use an op amp.

Most power supplies do not work near 0V. Most will not work below 2.5V.

Please state input voltage range. (+10 or -10?)
Output voltage range? 0 to -10V
Output current?

Does "montage = assembly", and is that the same thing as a circuit?

Thanks a lot for your answers and sorry for my mistakes in english,
I will try to be more precise, I am currently looking for an electronic function allowing me to invert a square wave. I do not have any precision on my input frequency nor on my necessary output current as well as on my input / output impedances. The only thing I know is that it is a square wave varying from 0 to + 15V. Thus, I must obtain a square signal at the output varying from 0 to -10V (level of my power supply) or a little below. So naturally I would have gone for an inverting amplifier but unfortunately my condition is to only use bipolar and mosfet transistors. I have a voltage of -10V as a power supply to help me. Do you think this function is achievable with only negative supply voltage? If yes, do you know a circuit to do this? Thank you very much for your help

Recapitulation :
Input voltage range : 0 to +15V
Signal shape: square
Input frequency : ?
Input impedance : ?

Ouput voltage range : 0 to -10V
Signal shape: square + no dephasage between entry and exit
Output frequency : same frequency as input
Output impedance : ?
