Natural Capital: The Economic Value of the National Capital Commission's Green Network
The National Capital Commission (NCC) protects and conserves more than 55,000 hectares of federal land in the National Capital Region. Much of the land we care is green space. A study estimates the total economic value of our green spaces at $5 billion over 20 years. The NCC’s green spaces provide direct monetary benefits, such as from wood and agricultural products, as well as benefits not measured according to traditional market metrics.
