Minus


Explanation:
E' il contrario di un "plus": se l'ambiente è inquinato, tale ambiente offre, assieme ai vantaggi, anche degli svantaggi, ovvero dei "minus" a chi comprerà un immobile in quell'area.

...which may harm the environment...


Explanation:
environmental liability is correct and would be alright for a title but is too long-winded in this context. It's always better to simplify as much as possible when translating from Italian.
