St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) April 5, 2006
The Doe Run Company today announced the addition of a section to its Web site, providing copies of communications from non-company perspectives.
Underscoring the need to consider complex situations from multiple vantage points, general manager Dr. Juan Carlos Huyhua of Doe Run Peru stated, “There is an opportunity to add perspective to the dialogue taking place on Doe Run in order to increase understanding on all sides. We believe the opinions and views of those outside our company who have firsthand experience in either living or visiting communities in which we operate are very important. Their voices and opinions have been under-reported, but are equally important to discussions on the future of our operations here or abroad.”
Located at http://www.doerun.com/news/viewpoints.aspx, the new section of Doe Run’s site is titled “Viewpoints” and can be reached from the home page (http://www.doerun.com/index.aspx) by clicking on “Views and Opinions” or through the “News Media Center” drop-down menu by selecting “Viewpoints.” The company expects to update this section on a regular basis.
