Sustainable Growth Rate

The amount that a company or economy can grow without having to increase borrowing. A sustainable growth rate is desirable because it satisfies the needs of the company or economy without increasing its fixed costs (in this case, borrowing costs), which can create significant problems if the growth slows or begins to decline.
