Environmental liability

Environmental Liability is based on the principle that he who causes environmental damage should repair the damage. This principal is found in many laws and regulations both provincial and federal. Weather you exercise your activities as a company or as self-employed, it is possible that one  wants to hold you liable for an act or a fault affecting the environment and you must defend yourself accordingly.

The environmental Liability insurance like all civil liability insurances assumes the defense costs and damages if any.
