The ANSI/BIFMA e3 Furniture Sustainability Standard is a comprehensive, multi-attribute standard for sustainability in the office furniture industry. The standard provides direction to manufacturers in the areas of materials, energy and atmosphere, human and ecosystem health, and corporate social responsibility. Third party certification (called LEVEL) is based on an audit of the corporation, the manufacturing site, and the specific products. ECD’s products are LEVEL 2 and can contribute to LEED and WELL projects.



ECD used the following methods for its product grouping approach for LEVEL certification:

  • The combination of base product and options with the highest volume of sales or anticipated highest volume for a new product within the product category/subcategories as defined in Annex A. It is not necessary to consider the full range of options available on the representative sample for purposes
    of the evaluation. Notwithstanding, all products of a family group are expected to meet the intent
    of the credits.
  • Worstcase sample selection as defined in the BIFMA LEVEL Standard (v 2019 ) – Section 4.
