The growing evolution of environmental regulations and the recent introduction of the environmental liability regime (polluter pays principle) have brought about changes for manufacturers subject to new standards. Polluting incidents involve reacting and taking rapid decisions in order to limit environmental damage. Our experts, specialized in soil, air and water pollution, can quickly be mobilized in France and internationally to support and advise companies and their insurers and discuss, if necessary, with government authorities.
What is a risk for the environment?
The work businesses do, especially in industry, exposes them to environmental risk that they must prepare against and respond to.
- Accidental water pollution by hydrocarbons, heavy metals and other solvents: pollution of water treatment plants, fish mortality.
- Liquid or gas emissions causing environmental damage.
- Dangerous decontamination work.
- Leaks in tanks or pipelines causing hydrocarbons to be lost into the soil and groundwater.
- Pollution caused by malfunctioning waste management and treatment systems.
- Demolition of buildings containing asbestos or other dangerous substances.
- Rollover of a lorry carrying toxic or flammable products.
All of these situations require comprehensive assistance, in order to manage these incidents, which are harmful for the environment and for nature.
Operate with a high degree of urgency
Whether related to water, air or soil, an environmental claim calls for an immediate response that is exemplary, in order to minimize its harmful impact on nature, but also on companies and individuals living in the area. And of course, we must protect the image and business relationships of the company involved.
Stelliant Loss Adjusting’s experts, who are specialists in pollution and the environment, mobilise within 24 to 48 hours throughout France and abroad. As soon as they arrive, they recommend emergency provisional measures for the companies involved. They also handle potential communication with government authorities (such as DRIEE or DREAL), so that the implementation of these measures can be coordinated in the best possible way. The goal is to minimize the impact of the pollution and identify where it is coming from.
