Sustain Charlotte is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization helping to advance a region-wide sustainability movement by serving as a catalyst for change.
Our mission is to inspire choices that lead to healthy, equitable and vibrant communities across the Charlotte metro region for generations to come.
Sustainability is an indicator of a community's long-term economic, social, and environmental well-being. However, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area lags other metro areas in many key sustainability measures, and prior to Sustain Charlotte's founding, there was no local organization raising awareness of the challenges to our sustainability and their solutions.
Sustain Charlotte was founded in 2010 to fill this void and has quickly become the metro area's leading voice for sustainability.
In 2014, Charlotte Magazine named Sustain Charlotte a Charlottean of the Year, and "One of Seven Charities Worth Your Dollar."
Our dedicated staff and volunteers work collaboratively with local neighborhood organizations, government agencies, nonprofits and businesses to address the most important challenges to the long-term social, economic, and environmental health of our community.
