Cintas Conflict Minerals Policy

Cintas is committed to the highest standard of integrity in our business practices, as set forth in our Code of Conduct and Business Ethics.

To ensure compliance with the principles and objectives of Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act:

  • Cintas expects our suppliers to source from socially responsible sources. We train our Global Supply Chain managed suppliers and request that they review their sources for compliance to the Conflict Minerals requirements.
  • Cintas expects all its suppliers to comply with the Dodd-Frank regulation and provide all necessary declarations.
  • Suppliers must pass this requirement on to their supply chain if they do not source directly from smelters and determine the source of specified minerals.
  • Suppliers who are non-compliant with these requirements shall be reviewed by Cintas’ Global Supply Chain and evaluated for future business consideration.

This Policy applies to Cintas Corporation, its subsidiaries or affiliates in which Cintas Corporation directly or indirectly owns an interest (collectively, “Cintas”), as well as any entity within the supply chain that produces consumer items for and to the specifications of Cintas. In certain circumstances, Cintas has adopted measures that are more restrictive than required by law because of its commitment to company values and its business reputation worldwide.
