This article assesses the contribution of a 'transnational', non-State actor agreement, namely, the 'Equator Principles', in terms of its possible contribution to both the making and implementation of international environmental law. It examines the provenance of the 'Equator Principles', as well as how far these Principles purport to interpret and apply important international environmental principles. While several formal difficulties remain to be overcome, this article considers the case for the inclusion of significant transnational, non-State actors like the Equator Banks and their agreements, such as the 'Equator Principles', within the international legal system as a further and alternative means of implementing these important environmental principles.
