Risk Management

Environmental laws such as the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA – or “Superfund”) and the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) assign financial responsibility and liability to real estate owners, operators, lenders and others for clean-up costs associated with contaminated soil, water, and other pollutant discharges. Federal, state, and local legal actions have become powerful motivators for property owners and managers to fully understand and manage their liabilities associated with environmental contaminants.

With experience in the areas of environmental risk assessment and management, as well as insurance, QUEST is well positioned to assist property owners, managers, and lending institutions to assess and prioritize their environmental risks.
