e3 Furniture Sustainability Standard
A new approach to eco-certification
BIFMA - 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 and atmosphere, human and ecosystem health, social responsibility, and 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.
The Orion Difference
Orion can combine an e3 assessment with other important standards certifications such as ISO 9001 /14001 / 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.
