Developed by the Business and International Furniture Manufacturers Association (BIFMA), LEVEL® is a multi-attribute standard 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. It’s the leading multi-attribute sustainability standard within the furniture industry, qualifying certified products to contribute to LEED credits and EPA ecolabel and GSA procurement requirements. Products eligible for LEVEL certification include all business and institutional furniture. This includes but is not limited to moveable walls, systems furniture, desking systems, case goods, tables, seating, and accessories. Certification includes an on-site audit to evaluate supporting data for the credits pursued. The program offers three performance tiers: LEVEL 1, 2, 3.


SCS, a global leader with 40 years’ experience in third-party certification, provides level certification that enables manufacturers to report their products’ environmental impacts consistently. This allows specifiers to quickly recognize products demonstrating environmental and social qualifications.
