Environmental Risks and Exposures

By Alliant

Navigating Your Environmental Exposures

Damage to human health and the environment can put your business at risk. From large scale petroleum spills to the gradual release of toxic substances, environmental damage can generate a variety of unexpected financial consequences.

At Alliant, our dedicated Environmental Risk specialists have the technical knowledge and breadth of experience to deliver the environmental risk transfer solutions and guidance you need to protect your company. From pollution and professional liability coverages to combined line product packages, our goal is to help you achieve continuity, sustainability and growth.

Under a variety of environmental laws, companies can be held liable for historic releases from decades prior. Our team understands that navigating environmental exposures to risk and liability is a complex process, but it’s critical to resilience and achieving your goals. Our mission is to help you through this process by providing consultative insurance and risk management solutions.

Environmental Coverage Tailored to Your Risk Profile

With Alliant Environmental on your side, you can rest easy knowing your company is serviced by industry experts who understand the unique nuances of environmental risk. We offer a wide range of coverages to ensure you have the correct environmental risk transfer products in place, with policies tailored to your company’s risk profile and appetite and structured to fill in pollution coverage gaps that are often found in property and casualty programs.

Environmental Coverage is Essential

Environmental insurance coverage is far broader than the limited coverage that is only sometimes included in standard property and casualty policies.

Benefits of dedicated environmental coverage include:

  • Closing gaps in coverage due to significant pollution exclusions in commercial general liability, auto liability and property policies
  • Facilitating mergers and acquisitions/brownfield redevelopments
  • Allowing debt financing
  • Satisfying contractual requirements (i.e., service contracts, lease agreements, etc.)
  • Satisfying federal and state regulations
  • Protecting your company’s financial interests and the fiduciary responsibility to your organization

Environmental insurance products that provide these benefits include, but are not limited to:
For contractors and consultants:

  • Contractor’s pollution liability (CPL)
  • Contractor’s pollution liability (CPL) + professional liability
  • Packaged products: general liability + contractor’s pollution + professional liability

For fixed sites:

  • Site pollution liability (SPL)
  • Storage tank liability
  • Packaged products: general liability +products pollution + site pollution
