Environmental liability insurance

Ecosphere

In accordance with the modern legal framework for environmental liability (Presidential Degree 148/2009), the company is obliged to bear immediately the costs of repairing environmental damage for which it is considered a possible culprit. This has an economic impact on the business but may also damage its reputation. For these reasons, it is necessary to protect the company through an environmental liability policy.
