Taiwan is a country with limited resources. Excessive emissions of greenhouse gases, excessive energy consumption in urban buildings and excessive waste generation are the causes of environmental damage and imbalance in Taiwan. According to the UN report, Taiwan is a high-risk group for climate change. Over the past 100 years, the average temperature in Taiwan has risen by 1.3°C, about twice the global average. Therefore, Taiwan must pay more attention to the effective use of resources and energy conservation. The medical industry is the second largest energy user, consuming a lot of energy and money, at least twice as much as the average workplace. In response, the Taiwan government is actively guiding the hospital's goal of moving towards a green hospital. However, at present, Taiwan's hospitals are faced with a lot of complicated projects for evaluating green hospitals, and lack of indicators that truly belong to Taiwan's green hospitals. In this regard, the study proposed the indicators belonging to the Taiwan Green Hospital in four steps, and then obtained 220 respondents by questionnaire to confirm the reliability and validity of the green hospital indicators. This study proposes two major indicators of environmental management and environmental education, and extends eleven sub-indicators, which will be detailed in the text.

Keywords: green hospital, indicator, environment
