    performance on the market. This typically shows
    excellence in all three assessment levels.: products
    features, manufacturing processes and company
    management.

Products with a high level of overall sustainability
    performance. This typically reflects product
    environmental features above the market average, often
    together with limited impacts in manufacturing and
    commitment in company management.

C Products with average overall sustainability performance,
    commonly reflecting standard products features, often
    combined with average practices in manufacturing and
    company management.

    than the market average. This usually indicates that
    improvements can be made in product features, but also
    in manufacturing processes and/or company
    management.

    and sold by companies committed to the SOFEA rating
    system.
