Environmental Impairment Liability

Tightening legislation and public scrutiny around the detrimental impact that business continues to have on the environment has made it imperative for organisations to have Environmental Impairment Liability insurance.

Environmental Liability insurance protects the company and its Directors and Officers if they are found liable for breaching environmental laws, causing harm to surroundings.

Environmental Liability Insurance has been developed as a solution to protect your business from this emerging risk.

Environmental Liability provides a range of covers largely not included under General Liability policies.

  • Coverage for gradual as well as sudden and accidental pollution conditions
  • Coverage for historic conditions and operational exposures
  • On site clean-up of pollution conditions

We aim to deliver an insurance solution that allows you to plan for the future of your business with greater certainty. We want to be a partner in your success.
