The underwriters of environmental liability coverage face a unique set of concerns as they evaluate submissions, looking at the history of the operations, assessing the current risk control methodologies employed, identifying possible environmental receptors of a loss, and forecasting the potential for a loss during the policy period. When a loss occurs, the underwriter needs confidence in the claims response that the loss is managed quickly, efficiently and professionally to control the costs. For a company seeking this coverage, whether it is by regulatory mandate or prudent environmental risk management decisions, proving insurability and securing preferred rates from superior risk control practices is paramount.
