Whether it’s a traditional risk transfer for operational exposure or a complex project, our unique Contractors Pollution Liability cover protects your clients and their contractors on-site. Together, we’ll identify the risks and minimise any impact.

Cover for clients and their contractors

Companies are increasingly aware of their environmental liabilities. This is due to changes in legislation and regulation, and because of increased pressure on all organisations to behave in a socially ethical and environmentally responsible way.

To address these liabilities, our Contractors Pollution Liability insurance covers the insured and their subcontractors while performing at a job site. It offers protection for gradual as well as sudden and accidental environmental liability arising from contracted work carried out at customers’ project sites.

We work with clients to help identify potential environmental risks, offering solutions that minimise impact on profitability. We have a range of solutions from traditional risk transfer for simple operational exposures to tailored programmes specifically designed for complex projects.
