AmeriPride Services, a textile rental services and supply company in North America has released its first ever corporate responsibility report.

The report outlines key programs and initiatives AmeriPride is implementing as part of its commitment to environmental sustainability, the health and safety of its employees.

“We're excited to share this snapshot of our efforts to be a sustainability leader in the industry and have a positive impact in the communities we serve,” said Bill Evans, CEO at AmeriPride.

“We at AmeriPride believe it's our responsibility to use our available resources to test and help advance new environmentally-friendly technologies,” Evans informed.

“We are also committed to the overall wellness of our employees and communities, which we demonstrate through industry-leading safety programs and community outreach,” he observed.

Evans added that by striving to set the standard for clean operations, both in its facilities and on the roads, the company is often able to pass efficiency and value on to customers.

Among various initiatives, fleet enhancements and alternative-fuel vehicles have reduced the emissions by more than 152 metric tons.

Solar panels in their New England branch have reduced its carbon footprint by 162 metric tons per year.

Water heater and boiler improvements have lowered costs and reduced the carbon footprint by 821 metric tons.

Heat reclamation equipment is expected to reduce the company's carbon footprint by more than 1,000 metric tons.

AmeriPride also initiated efforts to maintain a safe culture, such as a comprehensive safety training program, voluntary facility inspections, and safety and health committees at every branch.

The company has also installed advanced telematics technology in all company vehicles, which provides verbal coaching to drivers in real-time and provides notifications to management if safety guidelines are not followed.

The report also details the many ways AmeriPride's branches give back and strengthen ties with their local communities.

In addition, the company supports its employees through an employee assistance program, continuing education and a rewarding culture that reflects AmeriPride's family values. (AR)
