High Point Furniture Industries (HPFI), a manufacturer of furnishings for the commercial, educational and healthcare markets, announces that all of its casegoods, seating and table products have been certified to level® 2 by SCS Global Services.
Developed by BIFMA, a trade association for business and institutional furniture manufacturers, level is a voluntary certification program in which third-party auditors measure a product and its producer against the ANSI/BIFMA e3 Furniture Sustainability Standard. The level program was created to provide a comprehensive, unbiased and transparent means of evaluating and communicating the environmental and social impacts of commercial furniture products.
The level mark demonstrates that the product, the manufacturing facility and the company responsible for the product brand have all met the requirements for certification.
“Achieving level 2 is a significant milestone for HPFI,” says Spencer O’Meara, president and CEO of HPFI. “We’ve invested a number of resources in our sustainability journey, but it was and is the right thing to do.”
Digital copies of the certificates of compliance are posted on the Sustainability page of the HPFI website or on the BIFMA website.
