Pollution & Contaminatiom Insurance
Since 2000 the Environment Agency has brought over 20,000 prosecutions and set direct fines totalling £40m. Standard cover in a package or commercial combined isn’t sufficient for many companies and if you have a business that could pollute i.e. petrol station, car wash, oil distributor, chemical transportation and so on so you will need a specialist policy. If you do have this cover then you will be liable for clean up costs and any remediation work that is required.
