What is LEVEL certification?
The ANSI/BIFMA e3 Furniture Sustainability Standard takes into account a company’s social actions, energy usage, material selection, and human and ecosystem health impacts. The LEVEL brand identifies that a product has been vetted by an independent third-party certifier and its numeric marking 1, 2, or 3 indicates what threshold of the standard it has achieved. BIFMA’s LEVEL Certification Program is included in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Recommended Specifications, Standards and Ecolabels for federal furniture purchasing.
