Safeguard the continuity of your business

Growing public awareness and stricter environmental laws means that companies are increasingly liable for environmental damage. Traditional policies do not address all risks:

  • A fire policy covers to some extent certain clean-up costs after a fire.

  • A corporate liability policy only covers accidental environmental damage to third parties.

A company can damage the environment in many ways. A storage tank rupture, an accident with hazardous goods, air pollution and water contamination are some of the obvious risks.

The solution

Environmental liability insurance

Environmental liability insurance covers all consequences of environmental damage, both on the company’s own grounds and at the locations where the company operates. You insure the company against:

  • Pollution of the company’s own grounds

  • Liability for environmental damage to third parties

  • Remediation costs

  • Defence costs in legal proceedings

  • Damage to biodiversity.

Protect your business against financial risk from environmental damage and secure it with the right insurance. Our experts will be happy to review your insurance portfolio and propose a solution tailored to your business.
