Pollution Legal Liability Insurance from AIG UAE

Pollution Legal Liability

The PLL select policy is designed to be tailored to a specific business. The policy covers the provisions of the Environmental Damage Regulation 2009, including liability for damage to biodiversity and other new requirements such as complementary and compensatory remediation resulting from the covered operations. This policy is particularly valuable in property or company transactions or other situations where pre-existing pollution liabilities might arise.
