Environmental Insurance Coverage
If you already have a Contractors Pollution Liabilty (CPL) policy in place, there are key coverages to look for to make sure your policy meets the needs of your project owners.
A few coverage items to look for:
- Natural resource damage to protect wildlife, fish and wetlands.
- Transportation pollution coverage for over-the-road pollution exposures, including loading and unloading, in the event your cargo creates a pollution problem not covered by the CA9948 endorsement.
- Non-Owned Disposal Site coverage so the waste from your contracting operations doesn’t come back to haunt you later.
- Job site work coverage, including cleanup of pollution spills. This coverage is generally specifically excluded from most CGL policies.
