Environmental liability insurance (also known as environmental insurance or pollution insurance) provides coverage for loss or damage resulting from unexpected releases of pollutants typically excluded in general liability and property insurance policies. The losses or damages covered by environmental insurance usually arise in the form of claims against insureds for bodily injury, property damage, clean-up costs, and business interruption. Environmental liability insurance covers the cost of restoring damage caused by environmental accidents, such as pollution of land, water, air, and biodiversity damage.

Taking care of the environment and reducing pollution has, in recent decades, become a high-priority global topic. Changes in laws to help look after the planet are not only affecting the way industries operate but are also visibly affecting our day-to-day lives and habits.

No matter your industry and business size, whether you are a contractor, consultant, facility owner or manager, environmental insurance can help your business mitigate and safeguard against pollution related risks. It’s not just the production of hazardous substances and waste that can cause damage. Seemingly innocuous waste such as milk, runoff water containing food waste, oil or fuel can be serious enough to cause damage. Businesses are now liable financially for the cost of any damage their pollutants have caused. It doesn’t matter, either, whether it is pollution caused by your company or by your contractors.

Businesses, who may be especially interested in environmental liability insurance policy buying, are:

  • Industrial sites
  • Recycling facilities
  • Landfills
  • Transport terminals and warehouses
  • Pipelines and tank farms
  • Hazardous cargo carriers
  • Wastewater treatment plants
  • Brownfield redevelopers
  • Sewerage treatment and waste disposal facilities

Despite the best efforts of many businesses, there are incidents resulting in environmental destruction, injury or property damage. They may be sudden or they may occur over time, but when they do, environmental restoration and legal consequences are costly.

Environmental liabilities can arise for almost any company, and the recovery costs can be substantial — both direct and indirect. The majority of property and liability policies do not insure pollution risk, which means that your environmental insurance policy is the sole means for you to recover losses caused by environmental issues.Environmental liability insurance policy we can arrange will protect your business from unexpected pollution exposures and cover against such risks, as:
