As part of its environmental policies, the Chinese government launched this certification program to promote the development of remanufacturing industry, and to build the society where energy-saving and environmental conservation are valued by certifying companies that represent each industry as the pilot remanufacturing enterprises to encourage and support others to be more eco-conscious. The Chinese government also conducts the statistics of these pilot companies' data, and shares with other ministries and national organizations to accelerate the resource recycling economy. Out of 35 pilot companies certified this time (including three IT equipment companies), Fuji Xerox Eco-Manufacturing (Suzhou) is the only Japanese company.

The recycling site commenced operation in January 2008, has the capacity to disassemble and recycle 15,000 devices and 500,000 cartridges per year, and achieved device recycling rate of more than 96 percent in March 2009.
