NEW YORK--Dec. 12, 2007--AIG Environmental®, a division of the property and casualty subsidiaries of American International Group, Inc. (AIG), today announced the Sustain-a-Build(sm) Initiative, a program that enables AIG Environmental customers to receive discounts of up to 10 percent on premiums for new Pollution Legal Liability (PLL) policies for properties certified under the U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC) LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) green building rating system. The USGBC LEED Program is a nationally accepted rating system designed to certify efforts to reduce the negative impact of buildings and tenant spaces on occupants and the environment.

"AIG Environmental is making it easier for people to do the right thing," said Tom Hicks, Vice President of LEED, U.S. Green Building Council. "Green buildings consume less energy and fewer resources and are healthier, safer and more productive environments for the occupants. We all deserve to live and work in a green building and AIG Environmental's Sustain-a-Build Initiative will help make it more accessible for everyone."

"AIG Environmental created the Sustain-a-Build Initiative to encourage our customers to adopt environmentally sound construction and building operations," said Joseph Boren, Chairman and CEO, AIG Environmental. "In the long run, we feel that LEED-certified buildings will help builders better manage environmental risks."

AIG Environmental's PLL policies can be beneficial in insuring environmental issues associated with owning and managing real estate.
