This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previous live event.

As the fight against climate change continues, the importance of specifying environmentally friendly furniture has never been greater. But how can designers and specifiers determine whether the products they specify are as sustainable as they claim, and what role do rating systems play in the process?  

This webinar will explore the world of sustainable furniture design and delve deeper into BIFMA Compliant and Level programs that give designers greater confidence in preparing their specifications.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the importance of furniture standards to ensure safety and durability.
  • Identify key attributes of commercial furniture and their impact on decision-making for safety, sustainability and wellness.
  • Distinguish between environmental product rating systems to determine how they address ecological and wellness impacts.
  • Describe how the LEVEL program works, what it measures and where to find certified products.
