Many different environmental certificates for office and facility furniture have been issued for years, but most of them cover only limited aspects of sustainability. In addition, some of these certificates are in competition with one another. As a result, even experts may find it hard to disentangle the jumble of certificates and their respective requirements. Therefore, the FEMB sustainability standard and the European LEVEL certificate were created to provide guidance for developers, producers and buyers of office and facility furniture looking for comprehensive information about sustainability criteria.
The only accredited furniture standard for green economy.
The most comprehensive sustainability standard for furniture.
European LEVEL can cover other labels for furniture.
Legally based and accredited schemes are recognized.
Benchmarks and thresholds of other labels are integrated.
Matches market requirements for circular economy/procurement.
Unique world-wide credibility through official accreditation.
Selecting the right office and non-domestic furniture is difficult, especially when it comes to environmental considerations. But LEVEL makes it easier to decide well-informed or to recommend the right products for your customers.
LEVEL provides manufacturers both large and small with a consistent framework for communicating the environmental and social sustainability of furniture products and their manufacturers to the marketplace in clear terms that can be easily understood.
The standard and the related documents are under review at DAkkS and will soon be forwarded to the European accreditation bodies.
In recent months more companies have certified a total of more than 550 products to European level.
