Environmental, Social & Governance


Our environmental sustainability and social sustainability principles inspire our decisions: from top-level strategy to on-the-ground operations, we are grounded by our opportunity to contribute to a better tomorrow for us all. We call it “A Shared Drive for Better,” and it reflects what we do for Cintas, our employee-partners, our customers, our suppliers and our communities.

Our vision for sustainability influences how we do business, each and every day. It’s our focus on treating our planet well through daily practices that make our operations cleaner, greener and safer. It means we’re advancing everything we do, from evolving sustainable internal procedures, to operating a wash process that uses less energy and water than home laundry, to offering our customers more reusable alternative products.

Our goals motivate our unbridled commitment to building on a culture that values safety, equity and social responsibility, with a diverse workforce and an unwavering passion for running our company ethically and responsibly. Our management systems focus on honesty, integrity and holding ourselves accountable in everything we do.

Our emphasis on environmental and social sustainability keeps top-of-mind our efforts to sustain the world we live in, helping us grow our culture of respect, belonging and inclusion. It makes for not only a better workday, but a better company — and a better planet.
