What is Environmental & Contaminated Land Liability Insurance?

Recent changes in the law make polluters responsible for the cost of cleaning up contamination and covering the costs of returning the land to its original condition. This applies to the property or land owner if the source of the pollution is unknown or historical.

Environmental Liability policies can be tailored to your requirements, giving you the level of protection you require, either as a potential polluter or as a landowner sitting on an unknown risk.


If you are a property owner, land owner or involved in manufacture, distribution, construction or agriculture you should consider the risk. Even office-based organisations can find themselves facing clean-up costs.
