Sentiment Analysis
Dubarry is a fashion designer and retailer based in Ballingore Ireland since 1937 with assets and operations in the USA, UK and Europe. It is privately owned. Dubarry’s aim is to provide comfortable, versatile and stylish footwear and clothing. The focus on GORE-TEX based products, a waterproof, breathable fabric membrane, means the company is able to produce stylish and functional outdoor footwear and clothing.
Dubarry is a long-established company built on a significant and well-documented heritage. As a result, the company is a transformer, transitioning from a traditional linear business model to a circular economy based model. At this moment in time, Dubarry is at the beginning of that journey and so their trend analysis currently registers a neutral position.
At present, there is no sustainability guidance, ESG reporting or association with the SDGs through the companies website. The company does utilise Teflon fabric protectors on products which have been found to contain Perfluorocarbon acid (PFOA) and as yet there are no suggestions of using alternative ecological replacements. It’s clear that Dubarry commits to the quality of the products that they produce but there are no commitments to sustainability standards, policies, initiatives or associations. This also means that there are no data sources, reports, projections and as a result no published sustainability aims and objectives.
During the outbreak of COVID-19 Dubarry published clear information to support customers through the outbreak with the distribution of their campaign message “Safer Together, By Standing Apart”. This is message promoted safe, responsible shopping with clear published guidance and a healthy proactive lifestyle during the lockdown.

5 Active Systems
What Are Systems?

Systems describe a collection of activities that organisations can embrace to form part of their sustainability strategy. We identify systems within a company through their actions and connect these systems with targets to form an action plan or evaluate progress.

Dubarry currently prescribes to using 5 systems of transformation. These systems are repairability, reusability, longevity, stewardship and equity. Repairability means that their products can be repaired this ultimately saves the material cost of replacing a product. Reusability means that a product can be used by multiple users before the end of the products serviceable life cycle. Longevity means that products are provided with extended warranties or can be serviced to maintain long-lasting product life. Stewardship means that the organisation has a take-back recycling or product upcycling programme, showing their ability to act responsibly and use materials for other applications. Equity means that the products and/or services are available without discrimination to any gender, age, race or disability.

No Active Targets
What Is A Sentiment Analysis?

Sentiment analysis is carried out by our consultants, auditors and influencers when a company applies for an ESG score. The score consists of 5 criteria, these are as follows. Clarity, Transparency, Commitment Engaging and Detail. Each criterion is scored out of a maximum of 5 points. The average score is published discarding outlying results outside the average range of the 10 closet scores. Once the ESG profile is live anyone can create an account and submit their analysis. This analysis is provided anonymously to the company and is used to actively adjust their live sentiment analysis scores.

Dubarry has no documented sustainability reporting or targets set therefore their sentiment analysis is based on the presentation of information on its website, through social media and press releases. Our sources are linked above displayed in the activity grid.
