Cintas Executives to Participate in Barclays Business Services ESG Summit

President & CEO Todd Schneider and VP of ESG and Chief Compliance Officer Christy Nageleisen will discuss Cintas’ ESG Journey

CINCINNATI - June 6, 2022 - On Wednesday, June 8, executives from Cintas Corporation (Nasdaq: CTAS) will participate in the third-annual Barclays Business Services ESG Summit to discuss how the company’s sustainable business model has fueled its growth and laid the foundation of its ESG journey.

During the summit, President and CEO Todd Schneider and VP of ESG and Chief Compliance Officer Christy Nageleisen will join executives from Barclays and other companies in the business services industry to discuss their initiatives supporting this year’s event theme of “Doing good is good for business.”

Schneider and Nageleisen will participate in a moderated panel session titled, “CTAS – An ESG Journey that Builds on its History of Growth,” on Wednesday, June 8, at 10:45 a.m. View Cintas’ Presentation Live (The stream will be active at 10:45 a.m. ET on Wednesday, June 8)

Schneider and Nageleisen are expected to discuss how Cintas’ sustainable business model has underpinned Cintas’ growth strategy and imparted a holistic “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” mentality throughout the company’s operations. This mentality dates back to the company’s origins almost 100 years ago during the Great Depression when Doc and Amelia Farmer collected discarded, dirty shop rags from Cincinnati-area businesses, brought them home and laundered them, and then sold them back to area businesses, thereby extending their useful lives and reducing companies’ ongoing need for brand-new rags.

Further, Schneider and Nageleisen are expected to discuss Cintas’ ongoing efforts to define a new, enterprise-wide ESG strategy, including:

  • Its recent ambition to achieve Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050,
  • Ongoing innovations that help reduce the company’s environmental footprint,
  • Cintas’ people-first mentality and its impact on the company’s employee-partners, customers, and communities it serves, and
  • The company’s dynamic management system.

Cintas’ 30-minute panel discussion will be moderated by Manav Patnaik, Barclays Managing Director, Business & Information Services Equity Research Analyst. The Cintas discussion is part of the agenda focused on businesses’ circular economies and environmental impact.
