• Environmental risk: the threat to your balance sheet

    Most organisations, even those perceived as low-risk, such as offices, shops, and schools, have significant potential environmental liabilities.  Yet most business leaders do not recognise these, or understand the scale of the impact they can have on their bottom line.  Even small pollution incidents can give rise to substantial clean-up costs, third party liabilities and legal expenses, often many times the size of the fines.

    In reality, most organisations have environmental liabilities. These may take the form of contractual, reputational and operational exposures.  Environmental management systems, and effective maintenance in site infrastructure and monitoring cannot always protect an organisation from all environmental risk.   Traditional public liability policies can leave huge gaps in coverage and many organisations are left unknowingly but dangerously exposed.
