Every day public banks are developing new and innovative ways of financing a green transformation. To illustrate how public banks can provide green financing in a public way, this issue brief explores two specific and distinct examples: Costa Rica's BPDC (Bnco Popular y de Desarrollo Comunal or Bank of Popular and Community Development) and Germany's KfW (Kreditanstalt für Wideraufbau, or Reconstruction Credit Institute). Much of the information provided on the BPDC and KfW draws from primary resources, including the banks' annual reports.
