Explanation:
Have you heard the expression "self-sustained economic growth", meaning one that wouldn't negatively affect the environment? In Spanish it's "crecimiento autosostenido". So I think that in a context of demographics and ecology it could be translated as "capacidad de sostenimiento" (better than "de sustentación".
