Environmental insurance is a flexible policy that provides broad protection against liabilities relating to new and/or undetected pre-existing pollution conditions or environmental damage caused by the insured’s day to day business activity.
The policy can be extended and tailored to suit many different business situations. The main areas of cover include:
- third party liability including bodily injury and property damage,
- remediation costs imposed by regulators,
- pollution that is accidental and rapid or gradual,
- first party business interruption and emergency mitigation costs.
The policy is unable to cover identified / known pollution exposures (perhaps discovered in M&A due diligence) or first party liability, i.e. digging up your own land and the resulting clean up costs.
