Our mission is to inspire choices that lead to a healthy, equitable and vibrant community for generations to come.
The Leading Voice for Sustainability
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.
To achieve our mission we focus on three key strategies:
Educate - We educate the public about the value to our community of sustainability and how it is achieved, including the best ideas and practices from other cities around the country.
Engage - We provide opportunities for increased public engagement in the discussions and decisions that determine our future’s sustainability.
Unite - We unite citizens, businesses, nonprofits, public agencies and academic institutions to develop shared visions, goals, and strategies for a sustainable region.
