Environmental Impairment Insurance
Environmental exposures have profoundly outstripped the coverage provided in the standard commercial general liability (CGL) policy. Specialty pollution coverages can provide excellent protection in this dynamic area of commercial liability.
In spite of sweeping regulatory and legal changes, pollution insurance has become much more affordable, bringing this important protection within the reach of most businesses.
Coverage options have never been wider. It is easier than ever to tailor a pollution cover to your individual needs.
Environmental impairment liability (EIL) goes far beyond the CGL coverage in several important areas:
- Gradual and sudden pollution coverage: EIL provides cover for sudden pollution events such as fire, explosion or sudden spill from a tank or container, as well as gradual seepage, including historical pollution.
- Government-ordered clean-up expenses: EIL provides cover for bodily injury, property damage and clean-up expenses arising from a pollution event. By contrast, the CGL policy expressly excludes any government-ordered clean-up and monitoring expenses. Most spills are remediated under the supervision of the Ministry of the Environment officers, so this cover is very important.
- Waste materials: the CGL policy provides no cover for pollution from waste materials. Pollution of any kind from even the most innocuous wastes is subject to an absolute exclusion.
The EIL policy automatically provides cover for off-site (third-party), clean-up expenses. The policy can be extended to include on-site (owned and rented premises) clean-up expenses.
