Environmental insurance can provide much needed financial security and stability to companies and protect them from the many
un-insured environmental liabilities they may face. Standard public liability policies offer limited environmental cover and,
therefore, questionable protection for pollution liabilities. In addition new environmental legislation increases the range
of risks and responsibilities for companies.
Environmental insurance can be used to unlock problems during company mergers and acquisitions, provide protection from the
liabilities associated with historical land contamination and can be used to protect today’s industry and commerce from the
environmental risks arising from their operational activities. Environmental cover from Chubb ensures that you are covered
for the most up to date environmental legislation.
With two main policy types but hundreds of different applications for them, whether in the UK or further afield, our interests
and experience are both wide and deep. We can, and have, written everything from the operation of an oil refinery to the
construction of a sewage works, from the development of an office block on a former contaminated land site to the operation
of a landfill site.
