At this Airmic Live Webinar, representatives from the IUA’s Non-Marine Environmental Committee (NMEC) will discuss the IUA’s recently published Practical Buyer’s Guide to Environmental Risk (accessible here). The Guide was designed to provide a comprehensive overview of environmental risk and the Environmental Impairment Liability (EIL) market.

Panellists will discuss key themes appearing in the Guide, such as environmental harm and torts, the limitations of environmental coverages provided in other types of non-EIL insurance policies and environmental loss scenarios that illustrate the role of EIL policies in responding to a broad range of environmental incidents.

After this session you will be able to:

  • Explain environmental harm
  • Summarise statutory regimes
  • Compare options for Environmental insurance coverage
  • Use case studies to explore environmental insurance claims experiences
