The article looks at the structure and operational framework of investment banks in Europe, particularly KfW of Germany, as the British government decided to launch its own, the Green Investment Bank. KfW, which is 80 percent owned by federal government, has developed into a sophisticated financial model which pushed advancement in low-carbon technology and climate change awareness. Great Britain can get inspiration from this bank as it designs Green's structure, governance framework and policies.
