PHILADELPHIA--(Business Wire)--
ACE USA, the U.S.-based retail operating division of the ACE Group, today
announced the availability of a new podcast examining the environmental
exposures faced by the public entity and educational sectors. "Identifying Cost
Effective Solutions for Public Entities with Environmental Exposures," is the
second podcast in an occasional series of recordings designed to provide topical
information and relevant risk solutions for public entities. The podcast
discusses integrated and innovative coverage options that can help mitigate
environmental risks for public entities based on their current risk appetite or
purchasing capabilities. 

"Managing environmental risks can be a challenge for public entities, especially
in today`s economic climate," said Paul Cunney, Vice President, ACE Public
Entity Practice Leader. "ACE understands these challenges and we have developed
this podcast to provide useful and targeted information to help the public and
educational sectors better manage their environmental risks." 

The new ACE podcast includes commentary from Mr. Cunney and Jon Peeples, Vice
President, ACE Environmental Risk, who oversees the Public Entity products for
that group. It also looks at the significant growth rate of environmental
exposure among cities, counties, states, special districts and school districts.

According to Mr. Peeples, "The public entity and educational sectors continue to
face a wide variety of exposures to pollution risks resulting from gaps in
appropriate environmental liability coverage. Through this podcast we
demonstrate ACE`s continued commitment to serving the unique environmental needs
of public entities by providing simplified, affordable, and readily available
products to help mitigate this risk."
