About BIFMA’s LEVEL®
BIFMA’s LEVEL® is a multi-attribute sustainability standard and third-party certification program for the furniture and modular interiors industry. It was created to deliver the most open and transparent means of evaluating and communicating the environmental and social impacts of furniture and modular interiors products in the built environment.
Taking into account a company’s social actions, energy usage, material selection, and human and ecosystem health impacts, LEVEL® addresses how sustainable a product is from multiple perspectives.
With LEVEL®, customers can make informed choices about commercial furniture and modular interiors that exceed those based upon single-attribute eco-certifications. LEVEL® branding identifies that a product has been vetted by an independent certifier, and its numeric marking 1, 2, or 3 indicates what threshold of certification it has achieved.
Manufacturers big and small use the LEVEL® methodology to present their products’ environmental characteristics in a clear, easily understood manner. This gives end users the ability to make informed decisions about which products to purchase for their business.
