Environmental Liability Insurance

Products that fall under the category of environmental liability insurance protect a company from financial loss that arises from pollution / contamination accidents. The policy can provide long-term protection against known environmental risks as well as unknown sudden, accidental, gradual, and historical pollution liabilities.

Environmental liability insurance in Korea can cover:

  • Clean-up / remediation costs including regulatory costs
