Aon eSolutions Releases New Environmental Module

Aon eSolutions, the client technology arm of Aon Corporation, and a provider of risk and insurance solutions, has released a new Environmental module as part of RiskConsole, its browser-based risk management information system.

Developed in conjunction with Aon Environmental Services Group, RiskConsole's new Environmental module provides organizations with the ability to effectively manage the multi-faceted environmental due diligence process, which generates volumes of sampling data, assessment reports, regulatory correspondence, and other legal correspondence.

The environmental liabilities associated with the purchase, sale, and development of properties can be extremely complex and costly. Risk managers must be vigilant in addressing environmental issues to reduce the possibility of losses. As an essential step in any real estate transaction, a piece of property must be evaluated for environmental contamination and potential liabilities for the new owner in regards to cleanup costs.
