NEW YORK – December 2, 2009 – Chartis today announced the enhancement of its Environmental Division’s Environmental and General Liability Exposures (EAGLE) Program®, which provides standard general liability coverage together with pollution coverage in one insurance policy.

The EAGLE enhancements include, among others:

• Coverage of emergency response costs in the absence of a third-party claim;
• Expanded coverages, including protection from erroneous delivery of a product and a per project general aggregate; and
• Broadened definitions for key terms such as clean-up costs, which now encompass restoration costs.

“These new enhancements broaden coverage to reflect today’s risks, reflect our continued commitment to our clients and further solidify the position EAGLE holds as the most comprehensive primary casualty pollution product on the market today,” said Russell M. Johnston, President and Chief Executive Officer of Environmental.

In addition to EAGLE’s enhancement, policyholders will also benefit from access to market-leading tools and programs designed to facilitate and complement the overall policy. These specialized tools and programs help manage environmental risk, mitigate environmental losses and optimize emergency response, and include:

• PIER (Pollution Incident and Environmental Response), which supports a swift emergency response regardless of a claim;
• A Risktool System designed to manage environmental health and safety issues;
• SCANSM (Specialty Assistance Claims Network), to help prevent and mitigate costly indoor air quality claims;
• An environmental portal to track insurance for multiple real estate portfolios; and
• The industry’s largest environmental claims team, comprised of over 80 professionals.
