Fuji Xerox Company Limited has established the integrated recycling system for the purposes of reusing parts and recycling of used products and consumables in Japan, China and Thailand that achieve over 99 percent resource recovery from our products at end-of-life. Recently, the company has also established recycling systems in South Korea, Australia and New Zealand to manage the recycling of end-of-life equipment and consumables with local recycling partners. In addition to these facilities and systems, Fuji Xerox Australia continues to operate its United Nations award-winning Eco Manufacturing Centre, dedicated to the remanufacture of parts and sub-assemblies for the local market since its foundation in 2000.

Although Fuji Xerox recycling centres and reverse logistics systems have always been diligently managed to reduce environmental risk, there are increasing concerns for waste crossing borders from Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries to developing nations. The adoption of the Basel Ban Amendment and regulations by each country on the export of hazardous waste is clear evidence of this. Since the foundation of Fuji Xerox Eco Manufacturing in Thailand in 2004, and Fuji Xerox Eco Manufacturing in China in 2008, all Fuji Xerox sales companies have been collecting used products and transferring them to these facilities. In January 2012, Fuji Xerox sales companies in South Korea, Australia and New Zealand started operations of the recycling systems with local partners, in accordance with the policies and guidance of the global recycling system division in Fuji Xerox.
