Long-Term Financing of Stewardship Obligations
Until now, financing of environmental stewardship obligations has been limited to 15 or 20 years. Through the Sentinel Trust, and its partners, financing can now be secured for periods of up to 50, or even 75 years.
Assuring Federal Protection Against Cleanup Costs
All Appropriate Inquiry Alone Does Not Afford Federal Liability Protection
Many property owners have been led to believe, upon completion of their All Appropriate Inquiry (AAI) prior to purchasing a piece of commercial property, that they will enjoy federal liability protections under the Brownfield Amendments to Superfund/CERCLA. Yet, the Brownfields Amendments clearly require that such owners satisfy their "continuing obligations" in order to maintain their federal liability protection.
American Brownfields Assurance Company, Inc. and the Sentinel Stewardship Companies, are uniquely positioned to work together with property owners to provide resources and tools that property owners might utilize to satisfy their continuing obligations under the Brownfields Amendments and to secure federal liability protection.
