As a result of recent case law and ever increasing statutory regulation, no longer can a business rely on their traditional insurance programme to meet the significant costs of a pollution incident, as highlighted by the Bartoline court case which left the company with an uninsured bill of over £700,000!
Cooke & Mason, working closely with the main environmental insurance markets and with in-house expertise, are in a position to offer a range of specialist insurance solutions.
Whether you operate from a single site; are a contractor working on third party premises; a haulier transporting hazardous loads; a developer with a brown field site or a property owner who may be held liable for the clean-up costs of their tenants, your needs are different and we have an insurance solution for you.
In addition, working closely with PIB Risk Management, our award winning health and safety division, we are able to offer environmental audits to provide compliance with:
- Relevant environmental legislation
- National or local environment consent or by-law conditions
- ISO14001 accreditation
- Environmental insurance conditions
PIB Risk Management can help you produce an environmental policy for your organisation which sets out your intentions to manage your environmental impact in a responsible way. In addition, we can also assist and guide you in the development of an Environmental Management System, tailored specifically to your activities, through which you can manage and reduce your impact on the environment and ensure compliance with relevant legislation.
