Did you know?

Road goods transport has increased dramatically after Slovenia joined EU. This is due to increased volume of tonne-kilometers of the Slovenian transport carriers. The road goods transport increased in 2004-2014 for about 80%. After 2011 the growth continues, with exception of the aviation transport. After 2011 the share is constant. From the environmental point of view the growth of road freight transit through Slovenia is alarming. Emissions form the transit contributes to the air pollution and GHG emissions as well.

Environmental indicators in Slovenia

The web portal Environmental Indicators in Slovenia provides access to over 100 indicators which use graphs, maps and comments to present the environmental trends in Slovenia. The indicators are organized into thematic groups – chapters covering environmental components (e.g. water, air), environmental issues (e.g. climate change, nature protection, loss of biodiversity, waste management) and the incorporation of environmental content in the formulation of sector policies (e.g. transport, agriculture, tourism, energy, instruments of environmental policy). The indicators represent one of the four pillars of our environmental reporting, based on the demands in article 106 of the Environment Protection Act (Official Gazette of the RS, No. 41/2004 with changes). Based on numerical data, they indicate state, characteristics and trends of environmental development in Slovenia. They are produced via interlinkages among the data and observations as shown on Figure 1. More
