Zhuanzhuan, a leading circular economy enterprise, signed an official contract in Beijing on May 18 to become the official supplier of second-hand recycling services for the Chengdu 2021 FISU World University Games this July, making it the first circular economy enterprise to provide these services for a top international event. The World University Games in Chengdu is the first major global event to introduce free second-hand mobile phone lending services for visiting athletes while also providing a platform that supports the recycling of surplus materials once the games are over.
Zhuanzhuan has achieved a significant leap in product quality. To reach the necessary standard for the games in Chengdu, the company improved and upgraded over 200 quality inspection processes and standards for second-hand mobile phones and electronic products. Additionally, the pace of door-to-door recycling and brand store construction has been accelerated to bridge the trust gap regarding second-hand product circulation. The company also completed the training of almost one thousand front-line service experts to ensure its high-standard delivery.
Huang Wei, CEO of Zhuanzhuan Group, said: “Zhuanzhuan’s corporate philosophy fits perfectly with the green and low-carbon theme of the games while seizing the opportunity to make our planet better. We will rely on our experience accumulated in the development of the second-hand recycling industry over multiple years to create a green, low-carbon, and sustainable supply model and offer a second-hand recycling service that provides high-quality, safe, and efficient second-hand products and post-competition asset recycling service support for the games in Chengdu.”
Miao Yuyuan, Deputy Director of the Communication Department, the Executive Committee of the Chengdu FISU Games, said: “The Chengdu 2021 FISU Games is the first large-scale international event to be held in mainland China in over three years and it is also the first comprehensive event held in western China. This cooperation with Zhuanzhuan for an international sports event highlights our commitment to a green, low-carbon, and sustainable World University Games in Chengdu.”
