Advantages in Action

Challenge

A plastic component manufacturer and distributor learned its general casualty program specifically excluded pollution losses, an area in which the company had exposures.

Solution

AIG drew on its environmental expertise to present the client with a detailed analysis of its exposures and a tailored Environmental and General Liability Exposures (EAGLE) Program® to fit its unique needs.

AIG Benefit

The client has peace of mind knowing they have the appropriate coverages for their unique needs, supported by insights that reduce risk.

Challenge

A client had a fire at a paint facility. While extinguishing the fire, water run-off endangered the surrounding area.

Solution

The client called first responders and AIG’s PIER® Hotline, allowing them to work with local resources to ensure contamination did not spread. The site was quickly remediated, preventing potential contamination of a local waterway.

AIG Benefit

The rapid response, prevention, and mitigation measures helped reduce the overall cost of the claim. Quick action—including use of PIER® —protected the waterway and the client’s reputation as a socially responsible community member.

Challenge

In expanding to a new country, a client needed a locally admitted policy and certificate of insurance for environmental liability.

Solution

AIG’s global network quickly placed local coverage meeting the in-country requirements, including the requisite certificate.

AIG Benefit

The client was able to keep its business running without interruption and/or fines.

What is Environmental Insurance?

Environmental insurance covers your business in the event of a pollution accident that causes bodily injury, property damage, or clean-up costs for third parties. Oftentimes, other types of liability insurance will not include this type of coverage, so it’s a good idea to consider environmental insurance if your business may be involved in any hazardous waste emissions or exposure. This can happen during manufacturing, excavation, and construction. Agribusinesses and oil companies may also be at a unique risk.

The scenarios described herein are offered only as examples. Coverage depends on the actual facts of each case and the terms, conditions and exclusions of each individual policy. Anyone interested in the above product(s) should request a copy of the standard form of policy for a description of the scope and limitations of coverage.
