Sustain Charlotte is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization helping to advance local sustainability through smart growth. Our dedicated staff and volunteers work collaboratively with residents, neighborhood organizations, government agencies, nonprofits, and businesses to solve the most important challenges to the long-term social, economic, and environmental health of our community.
Our mission is to inspire choices that lead to a healthy, equitable, and vibrant community for generations to come.
We believe that the best strategy to achieve a sustainable community is through smart growth.
Smart growth is an approach to development that encourages a mix of building types and uses, diverse housing and transportation options, development within existing neighborhoods, and community engagement. This approach supports local economies, protects the environment, and furthers opportunities for all.
