Intelsius Announces Donation Partnership with ORCA for the Conservation of Whales and Dolphins
YORK, England, June 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — As part of its commitment to preserving the environment, including the planet’s wildlife, Intelsius, a global manufacturer and distributor of environmentally safe, temperature-controlled and regulatory-compliant packaging solutions, will donate proceeds from every Intelsius ORCATHERM(TM) and ORCATHERM LITE unit sold to ORCA, a leading whale and dolphin conservation charity.
“We all care for the environment, but actions speak louder than words. This is an opportunity for Intelsius to step up and demonstrate our long-term commitment to environmental stewardship. At the same time, our ORCATHERM & ORCATHERM LITE products are also helping the Life Science sector reduce their carbon footprint in the transport of temperature sensitive products and assets, a win-win-win result,” said David Walsh, founder and CEO of Intelsius. “Supporting ORCA’s mission to protect whales and dolphins will be a long term commitment for Intelsius, and one of the many initiatives we intend on launching in support of environmental stewardship.”
ORCATHERM is a passive temperature-controlled shipping system that has been engineered to ensure optimal thermal protection for high-value shipments during distribution within challenging environments. A heavy-duty shipping system, ORCATHERM is completely reusable and uniquely designed with encapsulated Vacuum Insulated Panels (VIPs), which produces up to seven times the insulating effects as the same thickness of less eco-friendly materials.
“We are hugely grateful to Intelsius for their support, which will enable us to carry out even more research into whales and dolphins and develop solutions to help protect them,” said Sally Hamilton, director of ORCA. “The contributions we receive from Intelsius will make a big difference to our efforts and to the worlds of whales and dolphins.”
Founded in 2000, ORCA is a marine conservation charity dedicated to forging links between people and the sea through the study of whales, dolphins and porpoises. ORCA is committed to educating others on the conservation of these marine mammals to protect them for future generations. For more information about ORCA, visit www.orcaweb.org.uk.
