However, we all must be alert to risks, however small. Staff are expected to report their concerns and management to act upon them.
This Statement is published in line with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
This Statement covers the business activities of DGP Intelsius. We are a global leader in the environmentally friendly manufacture and supply of temperature-controlled packaging and regulatory compliant sample transport solutions.

In addition, for our largest suppliers’ annual audits are in place to ensure compliance with our core values.
The Company is committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our business or supply chains. This Statement affirms its intention to act ethically in our business relationships.
