Why you need Environmental Consultants Insurance


Because your business provides a professional service giving environmental advice, guidance and reports, then your clients have an expectation of receiving expert guidance and a good standard of service. Helping your clients through an environmental project’s cycle, from planning through design, permitting, operation and management, means that you need to make sure that you’re protected should something go wrong along the way.

If your client feels that the service expected of you has not been received, they could then make a legal claim for compensation and the potential costs to your business if a claim is successful can be extremely high. As well as legal expenses there could also be a compensation sum to pay in these cases so it’s important to ensure you’ve got the right cover in place to protect your financial security.

The Insurance Octopus will help you to put together an Environmental Consultants Insurance package specifically tailored to your business needs by working with a selection of UK insurers to provide the widest choice of Professional Indemnity insurance. By having flexibility with your professional indemnity business insurance policy from The Insurance Octopus, you can make sure your cover fits your exact requirements. It couldn’t be easier to get covered.
