MR MARVIS is the largest Dutch clothing brand to become a Certified B Corporation

We are very proud to announce that MR MARVIS is officially a Certified B Corporation (B Corp). As a B Corp, we are part of a global community of businesses that meet high standards of social and environmental impact.

Ever since the launch of our first pair of perfect shorts - back in 2016 - we have strived to make conscious decisions in every aspect of our business. From being an inclusive and considerate employer, to producing in Portugal using more sustainable materials. As a B Corp, MR MARVIS is now officially part of a community of businesses spearheading a global movement for an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economy. We join the ranks of thousands of like-minded businesses worldwide, including conscious brands Allbirds, Chloé, Patagonia, and Veja.

MR MARVIS has surpassed the required minimum score of 80 points to become a B Corp, achieving a notable score of 101.7 on the B Impact Assessment. The average score for B Corps in the Netherlands is 83.7 points, while non-B Corps typically score around 50 points. This achievement reflects our commitment to responsible business practices and a positive impact on society and the environment.

“After a two-year team effort, we are proud to call ourselves the largest Dutch clothing brand to become a B Corp. While we take pride in this achievement, it is one step in an ongoing journey. Becoming a B Corp is a testament that we are on the right path. We are very proud of this achievement and remain committed to further enhancing our positive impact on people & planet.” - David Sipkens, co-founder & CEO

“To achieve B Corp certification is a major milestone for MR MARVIS. We are happy to welcome them to our B Corp community and wish them well as they continue in their sustainability journey.” (Tessa van Soest, Executive Director B Lab Benelux)

All social and environmental efforts that contribute to our B Corp certification can be found in the first edition of our annual Action Report. This report gives a detailed insight into MR MARVIS’ social and environmental decisions and their impact. You can find the full report via the link below. However, to give you a brief summary, here are some highlights that have greatly contributed to our achievement of becoming a certified B Corporation:

  1. The use of environmentally preferred materials (organic, recycled, and recyclable), a permanent collection of timeless designs and no end-of-season sales.
  2. High standards for working conditions which are formalised through a Code of Conduct that was signed by all our production partners.
  3. Supporting charitable causes, both through monetary donations and team volunteering work.
  4. We are dedicated to reducing our carbon footprint and achieving net zero emissions by 2030. To reach this goal, we thoroughly assess all emissions related to our operations and offset 110% of unavoidable emissions.
  5. In 2022 we donated a total of almost €60,000 to charities. We doubled all donations made by employees, and our employees invested 174 hours of their time in volunteering projects.

Obtaining the B Corp certification represents a significant achievement in MR MARVIS’ mission to make people around the world feel marvellous. But we are not done yet. The certification offers a valuable framework, helping to implement further improvements in all aspects of our business. We will remain focused on improving our impact - until the recertification in 2026 and beyond.

    Ready to get active?

    Introducing your new favourite sidekick: The Actives. Our outdoor-ready trousers are stretchy and stylish, perfect for your daily commute as well as all your weekend plans – from golf games to hour-long hikes. And if the pace picks up, you'll stay cool and collected thanks to their premium quick dry fabric. Caught in the rain? No problem. The Actives are designed with a water repellent finish. This more sustainable treatment is PFC-free and will slowly fade over time. To maintain water repellency for as long as possible, only wash when necessary using mild detergent.

    The Actives are made from 66% organic cotton, 30% polyamide and 4% elastane for extreme comfort. Next to their back welt pockets with magnetic closure, The Actives are designed with our signature hidden zip pocket to keep your valuables safe while you’re on the move. The elasticated waistband and hidden adjustable drawstrings guarantee the perfect fit. We've finished them off with a slider button and zip fly closure and our blue MR MARVIS label on the front, subtle yet smart.

    The Actives are available in eight autumn- and winter-ready colours. Mix and match our functional trousers with our limited edition jumpers, shirts and T-shirts for a sporty yet sophisticated look.

    The ultimate fit: denim edition

    Everyone should have a great pair of jeans in their wardrobe, so we made you one. Meet The Jeans, our first-ever denim trousers. They're our take on the perfect jeans, designed with our iconic tapered fit and premium MR MARVIS details. Made for every day, The Jeans pair seamlessly with all our limited edition knits, T-shirts and tops. And thanks to their clean modern look, they're smart enough for the office yet cool enough for everywhere else.

    Our new jeans for men are made of 79% organic cotton and 20% recycled cotton,* saving about 40% of water compared to conventional cotton. The Jeans also have a hint of elastane for a touch of stretch. Rather than a hidden zip pocket – which you'll find on all our trousers – our jeans feature a classic coin pocket, perfect for your keys and other valuables. They're designed with a zip fly and button closure, convenient and modern. We’ve finished them off with our signature blue MR MARVIS label on the front and a branded faux leather patch on the back.

    *Because of its very light wash, the light grey Louis is made of 99% organic cotton and 1% elastane. We save about 30% of water by using organic cotton rather than conventional cotton.

    The Jeans are available in nine distinct washes. Each wash is named after a cultural icon, celebrating musicians like Miles Davis (with the dark blue Davis) and actors like James Dean (with the dark grey James).
