New York – May 4, 2010 – Lexington Insurance Company, a Chartis company, today announced the introduction of CarbonCoverSM Design & Confirm, enhancements that broaden its Architects & Engineers Professional Liability Insurance Policy to respond to claims arising from greenhouse gas consulting and emission reduction verification services. The claims-made policy pays monetary damages, settlements and defense costs for covered claims alleging wrongful acts in connection with these activities.

“As design professionals take on a growing role in the rapidly expanding voluntary carbon market, they are consulting with project developers on greenhouse gas emissions to verify emission reductions and estimates on projects. CarbonCover Design & Confirm gives these professionals confidence that they have explicit professional liability protection when they embark on these new and specialized activities,” said Bob Rogers, Assistant Vice President of the Architects & Engineers Unit of Lexington Insurance Company.

CarbonCover Design & Confirm is the latest addition to Lexington Insurance Company’s CarbonCover suite of products for companies operating in the climate change and greenhouse gas emissions sector. The suite also includes CarbonCoverSM Registry, which provides liability insurance for carbon registries.
