Premises pollution liability

Markel’s premises pollution liability policy (PPL) has redefined how business owners protect their premises from environmental risk. The PPL product is designed to protect business owners from first and third party claims alleging exposure to various environmental hazards as a result of owning fixed real estate assets or operating business where environmental hazards may exist.

In addition, the PPL product is capable of extending to providing pollution coverage relating to the failure of a product which causes a pollution condition to third parties. The PPL product can also be integrated with Markel’s other suite of environmental products to create a customized, unique insurance solution to meet the needs of any industry segment.
