Environmental Impairment Liability Insurance

What is Environmental Liability? It is a potential legal obligation to make a future expenditure due to the ongoing or future manufacture, use, release, or threatened release of a particular substance, whether such events are “sudden and accidental” or “gradual” in nature. Clients in every industry are subject to environmental risk and liability and is a growing concern for many businesses that are involved in transportation or trade.

Today there are stricter regulatory requirements which have increased the demand for a broader risk management and insurance solution in this segment.
