About Sustain Charlotte
Sustain Charlotte is a 501(c)3 charitable organization that informs, engages, and empowers residents to address the numerous sustainability challenges that have accompanied our rapid population by advocating for 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.
Our mission is to inspire choices that lead to a healthy, equitable, and vibrant community for generations to come. Founded in 2010, Sustain Charlotte has become the metro area's leading voice for sustainability through smarter growth.
