Full Description

This Standard was developed by the Joint Committee on BIFMA e3 Furniture Sustainability using the consensus process described by the American National Standards Institute.

The Joint Committee was created by the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association (BIFMA) and NSF International.

NSF and BIFMA developed this Standard in order to provide the marketplace with a meaningful standard that would harmonize sustainability standards for the office furniture industry and help to distinguish environmentally preferable business and institutional furniture. The Standard was designed to allow for multiple levels of achievement, to provide an open alternative to proprietary protocols.
