Reasons to consider Environmental Insurance from AIG

Controlling personal exposures

Following an environmental incident, individuals also face the possibility of personal actions. In fact, some local regulations might hold directors and managers jointly or personally liable for the damages.

Environmental Liability Directive

Effective across Europe, this aims to make businesses that cause environmental damage responsible for the full consequences. It deals with serious damage to protected species and their habitats including protected sites, water including underground sources or groundwater and land where there may be a risk to human health


Our customers can negotiate alternative insurance capital, deductibles and coverage, tailoring the ideal risk management solution for their situation.

Local expertise

With the largest underwriting team in Europe and high capacity, AIG can provide expert decision making and added value consultancy services.

Preserving financial sustainability

Provides immediate protection (corporate and individual) from the costs, expenses and damages that an incident may incur that might threaten the financial viability of the business.

Reducing reputational risk

Media and public sensitivity to local pollution incidents can impact the business’s image. Holding this insurance is clear evidence of the precautions that the business has taken in managing its responsibilities.
