Recently the US Green Building Council announced that level® certified products can help contribute LEED® points under Pilot Credit 43.

level® certification, based on the ANSI/BIFMA e3 sustainability standard, is an evaluation of the sustainable attributes of a product, the performance of the facility where the product was made, and the manufacturer itself. level® was created by the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturer’s Association (BIFMA). It addresses four categories: material use, energy and atmosphere impacts, human and ecosystem health and social responsibility. Products earn points toward certification in each of the four categories. Products can be awarded a level 1, level 2 or level 3 mark based on the combined score achieved in their sustainability evaluation. Level 3 is the highest award a product can achieve.
