e3 Furniture Sustainability Standard

A new approach to eco-certification with level ®, BIFMA’s sustainability certification program for furniture

The level standard for furniture is unique in that it goes beyond the manufacturing process and product requirements and ensures companies also look at the facility that manufactures the product.  In the accreditation process, the sustainability of the company and its processes are measured against 4 elements of review:

  • Energy & Atmosphere

  • Human & Ecosystem Health

  • Social Responsibility

  • Materials

The level standard works on a points-based system, allowing applicants to achieve a standing of level 1, 2, or 3. Each level represents a higher degree of sustainability compliance. It also uses more approachable terminology to make its benefits more easily understood by all parties, from manufacturers to consumers.

Discover the Benefits

The level certification involves greater transparency over proprietary furniture eco-certifications, and is conducted by an independent third party certifier, providing increased confidence for environmentally conscious consumers with products bearing a level mark. A further advantage to level certification is that the standard is in use in international markets, including Europe and Asia.

Orion can combine the e3 assessment with other important standards certifications such as ISO 9001, 14001, and OHSAS 18001. This provides a more strategic approach that considers your business’s requirements and goals, while also offering significant cost savings and reducing internal time required for audits.

Orion is a recognized level certification audit firm and can assist your company with obtaining certification to this standard.
