The BIFMA e3 Furniture Sustainability Standard for business and institutional furniture manufacturers is the first fully transparent, multi-attribute sustainability standard addressing material utilization, energy and atmosphere impacts, as well as human and ecosystem health and social responsibility matters.
Manufacturers evaluating products to the BIFMA e3 sustainability standard and undergoing an independent, third-party certification process can achieve the level® certification mark.
It gives manufacturers a methodology to present the environmental characteristics of their products in a clear, easily understood manner and allows customers to make informed choices about commercial furniture that exceed single environmental attribute certifications.
The standard has been developed by working with stakeholders and experts from inside and outside the industry. Using the ANSI process, over 125 participants contributed to committees and sub-committees to develop the BIFMA e3 Furniture Sustainability Standard.
