BIFMA LEVEL Furniture Sustainability Certification Services

In developing sustainability for the furniture industry, SGS Taiwan has achieved accreditation as a certification body of BIFMA LEVEL furniture sustainability certification services. This recognition enhances their capability to offer a comprehensive assessment of furniture products, ensuring they meet high sustainability and social responsibility standards.

BIFMA LEVEL Certification:

BIFMA LEVEL, developed by the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association (BIFMA), is a renowned product sustainability standard that assesses the sustainability of office, school, and medical furniture products throughout their entire life cycle. It focuses on three critical aspects: the environmental impact, health and wellness impact, and social impact of the products. BIFMA LEVEL certification comes in three levels: LEVEL 1, LEVEL 2, and LEVEL 3. The higher the level, the greater the dedication of the manufacturer to sustainability and social responsibility. This provides consumers with a clear indication of the product's eco-friendliness and ethical practices.

Advantages of BIFMA LEVEL Certification:

BIFMA LEVEL certification offers several advantages to both manufacturers and consumers:

Exposure on the BIFMA Official Website: Certified products are showcased on the BIFMA official website, providing valuable guidance for project procurement.

Government Recognition: Recommended by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and various governments for public procurement, the certification is preferred for organizations committed to sustainability.

Green Building Certifications: BIFMA LEVEL certification enables products to earn points in LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and WELL building certifications, enhancing their performance in green building rating systems.

Amazon Recognition: The certification is recognized by Amazon, allowing certified products to be listed on Amazon's exclusive page, expanding their reach to a broader audience.
