What is BIFMA e3 LEVEL® Certification?

This certification is a multi-attributed, multi-faceted approach resulting in sustainable manufacturing within the furniture industry. Based on the BIFMA e3-Furniture Sustainability Standard, LEVEL is a third-party certification program.  The program provides manufacturers with valuable feedback to better evaluate their impact on the environmental, and also on the human population.  The program also helps manufacturers gain understanding on the social impact of their furniture products as well.  The LEVEL takes into account the manufacturing, facility, and organization impacts at all levels before granting any certification.
