Amazon Climate Pledge Friendly Program Now Recognizes and Promotes LEVEL® by BIFMA
LEVEL Certification is now recognized by the Amazon Climate Pledge Friendly Program and will appear as a sustainable label for furniture products. Manufacturers with LEVEL certified furniture products will now be able to promote this achievement when placing products on Amazon. Certified products will carry the Climate Pledge Friendly label and further carry the LEVEL mark allowing customers to identify environmentally preferable and socially responsible furniture products.
About LEVEL by BIFMA
LEVEL by BIFMA is the trusted furniture sustainability certification program created to provide a comprehensive and transparent means to confidently source responsibly manufactured furniture products. It is a three part program consisting of the ANSI/BIFMA e3 Furniture sustainability standard, the 3rd party certification process, and the public registry of LEVEL certified products. LEVEL certification contributes to sustainable building ratings offering three performance tiers: LEVEL 1, 2, and 3.
“BIFMA is proud to have LEVEL recognized by Amazon’s climate pledge friendly program,” said Deirdre Jimenez, President and CEO of BIFMA. “LEVEL was ahead of its time when first released in 2000 as a multi-attribute certification program measuring environmental, social, and sustainable practices in the sourcing, manufacturing, and business processes that manufacturer’s embrace as they make products for the built environment. The next revision of the ANSI/BIFMA Furniture sustainability standard, which is the basis for the LEVEL certification, is due to be released by 2024 and will work well with emerging ESG expectations in manufacturing.”
