PHILADELPHIA -- February 6, 2013

ACE USA, the U.S.-based retail operating division of the ACE Group, today
announced the availability of a new podcast examining the environmental
exposures faced by the public entity and educational sectors. “Identifying
Cost Effective Solutions for Public Entities with Environmental Exposures,” is
the second podcast in an occasional series of recordings designed to provide
topical information and relevant risk solutions for public entities. The
podcast discusses integrated and innovative coverage options that can help
mitigate environmental risks for public entities based on their current risk
appetite or purchasing capabilities.

“Managing environmental risks can be a challenge for public entities,
especially in today’s economic climate,” said Paul Cunney, Vice President, ACE
Public Entity Practice Leader. “ACE understands these challenges and we have
developed this podcast to provide useful and targeted information to help the
public and educational sectors better manage their environmental risks.”

The new ACE podcast includes commentary from Mr. Cunney and Jon Peeples, Vice
President, ACE Environmental Risk, who oversees the Public Entity products for
that group. It also looks at the significant growth rate of environmental
exposure among cities, counties, states, special districts and school
districts.

According to Mr. Peeples, “The public entity and educational sectors continue
to face a wide variety of exposures to pollution risks resulting from gaps in
appropriate environmental liability coverage. Through this podcast we
demonstrate ACE’s continued commitment to serving the unique environmental
needs of public entities by providing simplified, affordable, and readily
available products to help mitigate this risk.”
