Chubb has broadened the availability of its premises pollution liability and other environmental insurance coverages and risk management products through its newly expanded distribution network.

Chubb’s Environmental products distribution network has grown from nine to 48 branch offices, as a result of the merger with ACE. All offices are located in the U.S. Additional products and capabilities are now available for small, mid-sized, and large domestic and multinational companies through agents and brokers who do business with the new Chubb, including:

  • Premises Pollution Liability Products– Protection for a variety of residential, commercial, retail, and industrial environmental risks. Industry-specific coverages for Real Estate, Healthcare, Public and Educational Entities, and Agriculture are available.
  • Contractors Pollution Liability Products– Stand-alone pollution or packaged pollution policies for practice or project-specific (i.e., owner controlled insurance program, contractor controlled insurance program, and healthcare) environmental liabilities associated with day-to-day construction, remediation and/or consulting services. Packaged pollution includes errors and omissions liability protection.
  • Underground and Aboveground Tank Coverage – TankSafe, Chubb’s fully-automated Internet-based system, provides commercial underground and aboveground storage tank insurance.
  • Environmental Incident ALERT – All new Chubb environmental policies receive access to this environmental response program that offers 24/7 immediate support for environmental releases of hazardous materials and other regulated substances.

Environmental policy customers also will have access to a global network of engineering consultants, including environmental risk control experts from ESIS, Inc.

All products may not be available in all states. Products are also available in Canada. Surplus lines products are available only through licensed surplus lines producers. Coverage is subject to the language of the policies as issued.
