UniFirst 2021 CSR Report
UniFirst has announced the release of its 2021 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report.
Available in print and online, the comprehensive document outlines the company's ongoing social responsibility efforts in the areas of sustainability, diversity and employee initiatives, community, safety, product and service innovation, ethical governance, and financial transparency. Each topic is broken down in detail to provide readers insight into UniFirst’s CSR-related programs—each geared toward developing a deeper understanding of the lengths to which the company goes to maintain corporate responsibility.

The company also recently made its third consecutive appearance on Barron’s 100 Most Sustainable Companies in the United States list which is compiled by Calvert Research and Management on the basis of a comparative analysis of 230 indicators of sustainability common to the 1,000 largest publicly held companies (measured by market capitalization) in the United States.
Also this year, UniFirst has been recognised with an American Business Association (ABA) Stevie Award for its "Most Valuable COVID-19 Corporate Response", with winners chosen from over 3,800 nominations—a record for the ABA, and determined by the average scores of more than 250 professionals worldwide during a three-month judging process that considered "exemplary responses by companies to the pandemic to ensure the well-being of their employees, customers, and communities."
Steven Sintros, UniFirst Corporation President and CEO, comments: "In our ninth decade servicing North American businesses, UniFirst continues to operate in ways that make a positive impact on the lives of our customers, our employee Team Partners, and our planet.
"And while 2020 was a year that many of us will likely never forget—marked by unprecedented challenges and change, UniFirst remains financially strong, allowing us to leverage the resources needed to continually do our part within the communities where we operate."
