Since 1976, it has fully allowed the public to use of gas station toilets; it was listed in the Environmental Protection Agency’s public toilets in 1990; Public Toilets Cultural Forum was held in 2003, emphasizing human-oriented toilet space, creating a clean toilet environment, promoting citizen toilet culture, and enhancing urban civilization; in 2017, public toilets were upgraded and constructed to prevent toilet paper from landing to prevent the spread of vector bacteria; During the nationwide level 3 alert period of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021, when public toilets across Taiwan were closed due to the epidemic, CPC firmly stepped up cleaning and disinfection, opening the door to convenience for people on the move. After years of hard work, the public toilets of CPC gas stations have become the most convenient first choice for people on the move. The franchised station operators have joined hands to provide the public with a high-quality toilet environment.


Today’s "World Toilet Day-CPC stations, near to convenience!" The public toilet cleaning mobilization event was held at the Neihu gas station in Taipei.

Mr. Shun-chin Lee said that as a sustainable ESG enterprise and a member of the world’s citizens, CPC will integrate internationally and will not be absent from the annual World Toilet Day activities in the future. It will continue to join hands with partners and grassroots employees to clean public toilets for the public. The service does its best to deepen the public toilet culture with full participation, create valuable public toilets "Valuing Toilets", and lead franchisees to fulfill their corporate social responsibilities and achieve sustainable development goals.
