Chartis has renewed its relationship with the National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD) for the fourteenth year.

"Our members continue to benefit from our relationship with Chartis,” said Chris Jahn, President of the NACD. “This connection allows our members to manage risk effectively and comprehensively. Chartis’ dedication to the welfare of our members is unparalleled.”

“We are very pleased that we have once again renewed our relationship with the NACD. It is the NACD’s commitment to risk management, as well as its dedication to its members, that makes the relationship with Chartis a perfect match,” said Anthony Anzalone, Senior Vice President of Chartis’ Environmental Casualty Division.

The NACD is the authoritative voice in the chemical distribution industry, committed to promoting continual improvement in the protection of human health and the environment through responsible chemical management. The NACD’s member companies represent more than 85% of the chemical distribution capacity in the United States and 90% of the industry’s gross revenue. NACD membership requires participation in the Responsible Distribution program, a third-party verified environmental, health, safety and security program that emphasizes the organization’s commitment to responsible chemical storage, handling, transportation and disposal. To further strengthen this commitment to responsible operations, the NACD has aligned with Chartis to provide NACD member companies with environmental insurance solutions that meet the needs of the chemical distribution industry.

With nearly three decades of experience in the environmental insurance marketplace, Chartis can provide NACD members with innovative insurance solutions through its market-leading Environmental and General Liability Exposures (EAGLE) Program®. EAGLE combines standard general liability coverage with pollution coverage and, by endorsement, CrisisResponse® coverage in one policy. To round out Chartis’ insurance solutions, EAGLE Automobile, EAGLE Excess Follow Form, property and workers’ compensation coverages are also available to NACD members.

In addition to comprehensive coverage solutions, Chartis provides access to value-added programs that align with the vision and mission of the NACD. Examples of such programs include PIER (Pollution Incident and Environmental Response), a network of vetted third-party contractors that can provide an emergency response in the event of an environmental incident, and RiskTool System, an online resource that provides policyholders access to risk training programs, risk management guides and updates on relevant legislation.
