ENVIRONMENTAL LIABILITY INSURANCE
This insurance protects against unforeseen liabilities that can arise from operator error and mechanical failure.
General Liability and Property policies leave significant gaps in coverage for environmental exposures.
These can include regulatory clean-up, gradual pollution, first party clean-up and damages under the recently implemented Environmental Liability Directive.
The ”Polluter Pays” Principal continues to be in force and there is a -growing trend towards more ﬁnancial provision for environmental liabilities throughout Europe.
Companies now face the prospect of incurring a range of clean-up costs, compensation costs and associated damages as opposed to the traditional ﬁnes and penalties.
