ELT is able to effectively and securely transfer environmental liabilities from a client’s balance sheet – and assume all associated environmental risks and regulatory obligations.

Environmental Liability Assumption (with or without Real Estate)
All liabilities, known, unknown, contractual and legal are transferred to ELT affording maximum allowable release and insulation from future liability with complete indemnification of the Seller.
Guranteed Cost Certainty
ELT provides a fixed-cost solution for environmental obligations and unknown environmental risks. Clean-up is secured with a fully-funded environmental trust – potential cost overruns are backstopped by ELT capital and a comprehensive insurance policy.
Elimination of Compliance Issues
ELT assumes all environmental liabilities regardless of whether regulations change, ensuring the risk never reverts back to the Seller.
Financial and Economic Considerations
ELT allows the Seller to report an increase in overall valuation and balance sheet stability to investors and stakeholders.
Addressing Impact Investors
By divesting environmental risk, ELT provides a way for publicly-traded companies to address investor demands for more transparency in financial reporting and improved environmental sustainability.
Preserving the Legacy and Brand of the Seller
Following remediation, the site will be repurposed for its highest and best use, in line with any guidance set forth by the Seller. Brownfield redevelopment preserves the legacy and brand of the Seller when they cease operations, and provides ancillary benefits to the local community, such as job creation.
If environmental risk is impacting your operations, ELT can remove environmental liabilities from your balance sheet and assume all environmental obligations – past, present, and future.
