The European evaluation and certification
system for environmentally friendly and
socially responsible office furniture

Not just another standard for sustainabilty

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.
