AIG Environmental[R]: Environmental Insurance for Brownfields Redevelopment. (Corporate Profile)


With over two decades of experience in environmental insurance and brownfields redevelopment, KG Environmental[R] creates programs designed to reduce the financial risk and uncertainty associated with brown-fields redevelopment. KG Environmental[R] provides coverage backed by the member companies of American International Group, Inc.

Brownfields remain a high priority issue for communities. Given the potential economic, social, and environmental gains, a successful brownfields program can significantly improve the quality of life for citizens in the community.

Addressing the Risks

One important strategy includes ways to gain developers' and lenders' confidence that liability and contamination issues can be addressed. Environmental insurance offers assurance to public and private stakeholders alike, that the costs of cleaning up contaminated properties, necessary to improve public health and the environment, can be contained.

In parallel with the promise of preserving human health, brownfields can provide an important boost to local communities and their economies. The benefits of enhanced tax revenue, job creation and new investment capital extend to community members, local governments and developers alike.

Tools for Local Governments

Federal brownfields legislation and various emerging state brownfields programs offer a number of new tools for redevelopment. Among them is the ability to use federal funding to purchase environmental insurance. AIG Environmental[R]'s BUILD[SM] can help assure that communities maximize the incentives that are available to them.

Providing Risk Management Options

In an effort to support brownfields redevelopment, KG Environmental[R] developed BUILD[SM] -Brownfields: Utilizing Insurance for Land Development.
