Green is not always clean & You still need to “Mind the Gap”

13/03/2024 | Online Zoom Conferencing

Green is not always clean

Join us for a brief overview of the environmental risks still presented by Net-Zero, renewable and “green initiatives”.

You still need to “Mind the Gap”

Since 2010 Graham Hawkins has been presenting to the market about the gaps in cover between Property and General liability policies.  Gaps which Environmental Insurance fills to protect the broker (from professional liability claims) and their clients. 

In this briefing there will be a quick review of claim examples to highlight the benefits of working with Environmental Insurers to improve your MGA offering.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this session, delegates will be able to:

  • Summarise how to create awareness of environmental risks from “green” industries
  • Outline the “gaps in cover” between property and general liability cover (even with “bartoline extensions”)
  • Describe the specific benefits provided by Environmental Insurance, including emergency response costs, on/off site remediation, and biodiversity damage.
