Environmental indicators in Slovenia


Environmental indicators are based on graphs, maps and assessments and as such present environmental trends in Slovenia. The indicators represent one of the four pillars of our environmental reporting, and are prepared in accordance with the Environmental Protection Act. The Environmental Indicators in Slovenia website enables users to browse among 180 indicators. They are based on numerical data and they indicate the state, characteristics and trends of environmental development in Slovenia. They are prepared using a systematic approach based on data and monitoring, as shown in the information pyramid.

Did you know?

Bad

In comparison with the European average, the levels of transport charges in Slovenia are relatively low. The charges for the road freight transport subsystem are somewhere at the average level, while in the rail freight transport subsystem substantially below the average level of other European countries.

Bad

In the last decade (2012–2021), on average around 135,000 tons of hazardous waste was generated annually in Slovenia. This waste accounted for 1% to 3% of all generated waste in Slovenia. Since they contain substances harmful to the environment and health, they must be collected, recovered or disposed of separately from other waste.

In the last decade (2012–2021) each resident of Slovenia annually discards on average around 3.5 kg of hazardous municipal waste, of which the majority in waste electrical and electronic equipment (63%).

Neutral

Both the residents of the EU-27 countries and the residents of Slovenia are only partially aware of the problem of increasing transport and its consequences for the environment and health. Public awareness of the impact of transport on the environment is still relatively low, although the differences between European countries are considerable. People's awareness of the environmental problems of transport does not automatically lead to changing their travel habits, even though this would contribute to their better health.

Bad

Electricity consumption in households is increasing, especially in the last two years, and in 2021 it amounted to 3,803 GWh. The share of households equipped with goods that require electricity for their operation is also increasing. For example dishwasher, tumble dryer, mobile phone, microwave oven, personal computer as well as heat pump and air conditioner.

Good

In Slovenia, over 70% of the energy supply is available to end users. The share is by far the most affected by the efficiency of electricity and heat production.

In the production of electricity and heat in thermal power plants, less than half of the energy invested was lost in 2021. Compared to the EU-27 countries, Slovenia was in the bottom third of countries.

In 2020, the production of electricity from CHP accounted for just under 7% of the total production in Slovenia.

 

Neutral

In Slovenia, in 2020 the external costs estimate of electricity production ranges from 0.8 - 2.8 € c2000 / kWh. Despite growing environmental awareness, the price of electricity still does not reflect all external costs. Due to incorrect price signals, which are the result of the current situation on the electricity markets, energy sources in Slovenia remain suboptimally used.
