Summary Sustainable finance is a burgeoning area of international relations that cross-sects trends towards financial liberalization and global environmental governance. This article seeks to examine the role of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) in the emergence of a global sustainable finance regime through its finance initiative in 2003. Specifically, the article proposes research on the establishment and robustness of UNEP's finance initiative and the extent to which it has been taken up by the global finance industry. It aims to compare UNEP's finance initiative with the Equator Principles established by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) in 2004, which determine environmental policy targets for the banking industry. The comparison reveals institutional differences which maintain UNEP's position as a contributor although not necessarily a leader in the emerging sustainable finance regime.
