We are removing pollutants from NCC-managed lands, and preventing pollution by reviewing our use of pesticides.

We have committed to two actions and three indicators under the “Safe and healthy communities” goal. 

Our actions

Each action has a set of indicators — with clear, concrete and measurable targets — to evaluate success. The status of each are as reported in the 2020-2021 annual report.

10.1 Under the Federal Contaminated Sites Action Plan, clean up the highest-priority sites on NCC-managed lands.

Indicators Status
