Our Commitments

Our Approach to Sustainability

Mining Sustainably

At The Doe Run Company, sustainability principles guide our entire business. We balance social, environmental and economic responsibility daily, while producing metals and mining sustainably. We regularly gather insights from our stakeholders to understand their viewpoints on our progress.

Doe Run shares its social, economic and environmental performance annually, using an internationally recognized sustainability reporting framework, known as the Global Reporting Initiative, or the GRI. The framework was developed to encourage balanced and transparent disclosure globally.
