Overview

Overview

When remediation is needed to address toxic spills or other hazardous materials, companies want to know they can trust it will be taken care of correctly. The same idea applies when choosing the insurance that covers these environmental remediation and cleanup obligations.

Our remediation management insurance solution indemnifies the policyholder for financial losses when the anticipated cost of a remediation project goes beyond what is expected. AXIS insurance also protects against contingent and vicarious professional liability resulting from contracted remediation services.

Coverage backed by the exceptional financial strength of AXIS insurance companies

Underwriting team of engineers and scientists with site remediation experience

Expense handling managed as quickly and efficiently as possible
