ACE Expands Environmental Offering in Germanic Region; Launches ACE Umwelt
FRANKFURT, Germany -- January 27, 2014
ACE Group announced today the launch of ACE Umwelt (Environment) Plus, as it

insurance environmental risk cover.
ACE Umwelt Plus offers comprehensive protection against environmental risk as
it combines coverage for traditional German market offerings such as
environmental impairment liability, environmental contamination with
environmental damage under the EU environmental liability directive and a
global standard premises pollution liability coverage in a single policy.
The new product can be purchased both on a standalone basis or combined with
other ACE liability insurance products, while its menu structure means that
different coverage areas, combining first party and third party insurance, can
be included as needed. Additionally, ACE Environmental Plus includes features
• A simplified, flat-rate risk declaration
• Extended cover for damage to land by the policyholder

Importantly, the new product does not include a special “trigger” in the form

the policy; it provides cover for normal operation conditions too.
