Green economy in a time of austerity

The case for investing in a Green economy is unassailable; we know it is the only way to both create jobs and protect the environment. However, the radical transformation that our economy requires will not come for free, however good the returns on this investment will be. Given the tight budgets that many states face, how can this essential investment be realised?
