A HERITAGE OF SUSTAINABILITY
The magnitude of preserving and protecting the environment has a long history at Cintas. Doc and Amelia Farmer, out of work in the Great Depression, started washing rags that factories would otherwise throw away and selling them back to businesses for reuse. Our very roots lie in reclaiming used rags and creating another life for them, and that commitment to stewardship still exists today. We remain dedicated to improving the lives of our customers, employee-partners and communities by integrating environmentally sustainable practices, principles and solutions across our business lines.
At Cintas, our employee-partners are fully engaged in practicing workplace sustainability and environmental stewardship, and environmental issues affect our decision-making at all levels. Our suppliers are also an instrumental part of our sustainability efforts. Throughout the Cintas supply chain, our business partners demonstrate an ongoing commitment to environmental best practices and we work together to find sustainable solutions.
Sustainability is an essential core value throughout Cintas but it’s also important for us to partner with communities and organizations that share our commitment to environmental stewardship.
