Environmental liability insurance

Businesses face new and historical environmental exposures that can damage lives, property and company reputations. Some are visible, like the chemicals used in a manufacturing process, and some are hidden, like the leakage from tanks that can contaminate a property. They can be sudden or gradually occurring over time. No business today can risk being inadequately protected against such environmental threats.

Travelers' experienced team of environmental underwriters, risk control professionals and claim specialists provide environmental liability coverage tailored to the needs of businesses such as manufacturers, laboratories, colleges and contractors.
