The SPANISH ENVIRONMENTAL RISKS POOL is an Economic Interest Partnership set up in 1994 to oversee a coinsurance agreement for jointly underwriting environmental risks.

Environmental risk insurance undoubtedly serves the public interest, benefiting both individual and public entities.

We were formed to offer solutions that serve the public interest | Spanish Environmental Risks Pool

A challenge set by legislation

The Environmental Liability Act and developing regulations

The Environmental Liability Act (Act 26/2007), which transposes the European Directive on Environmental Liability into Spanish legislation, introduces a new type of administrative liability that is both objective and unlimited in scope, offering new coverage to address emerging needs.
