XL Group's Environmental insurance business has created a new excess insurance policy providing their clients and brokers in the US and Canada with a simplified solution for buying an additional layer of environmental insurance protection. This new excess insurance form supports a consistent coverage approach between the excess layer and the underlying policy. This new excess policy protects clients with environmental exposures that could lead to a multimillion dollar claim. Excess protection reinforces a company's environmental stewardship commitment, helping it address the high costs and cleanup of catastrophic pollution events. XL Group'snew two-page Environmental Excess Policy provides up to $50 million of additional pollution limits over another insurance carrier's environmental insurance policy. Coverage can be written over both occurrence and claims made policies.
