LEVEL® by BIFMA
An evaluation and certification system for environmentally-preferable and socially-responsible office furniture.
How far does LEVEL go in measuring sustainability?
When buying “sustainable” furniture, there’s often a question of how far the label goes in measuring the environmental attributes of the product. What about attributes beyond materials; elements like chemicals and the processes involved in making those materials? What about the well-being of the people in the manufacturing process? For commercial furniture there’s a lot to consider, and at the same time there are a lot of environmental claims. So how can you make a responsible choice that meets a project’s aesthetic and environmental needs?
Fortunately, there’s LEVEL by BIFMA.

LEVEL was created to deliver the most open and transparent means of evaluating and communicating the environmental and social impacts of furniture products in the built environment.
Find a Certified Product
Product selection is hard, especially when it comes to environmental considerations. But LEVEL makes it easier to make informed specifying decisions and recommend the right products to your clients.
Certify A Product
LEVEL provides manufacturers, both big and small, with a consistent structure to communicate environmental and social characteristics to the marketplace in a clear, easily understood manner.
Plan a CEU
Understanding standards can be a complex undertaking. Understanding a multi-attribute sustainability standard for furniture is no different. That’s why we developed a continuing education program for the A&D community, facility managers, commercial building owners, end users, dealers, and manufacturers to understand the specifics of the ANSI/BIFMA e3 Furniture Sustainability Standard and LEVEL third-party certification program for furniture.
