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.

In 2011, agricultural land covered 19.6% of nature protection areas of various types in Slovenia. 24.9% of all agricultural land is included in nature protection areas. In the past, agriculture in Slovenia has contributed to high diversity of species and habitats and played a key role in the shaping ofcultural landscape. Creation of protected areas is only the first step towards the preservation of traditional agricultural habitats; these habitats will only be preserved if the farmers have an economic interest in maintaining them.

Incentives that go against the goal of reducing greenhouse gas GHG have grown steadily by 2017 and have seen their decline in recent years. In 2020 they decreased by 9 % compared to 2019. The target information is not set, the "gradual significant reduction of environmentally harmful incentives" is pursued. The refunds on diesel excise duties, which have decreased compared to the previous year, still represent 37 % in total, are contrary to the achievement of the GHG emission reduction targets.

The implicit level of energy taxation fluctuates throughout the observed period, but recently it has been gradually declining. The value of the indicator for Slovenia in 2020 is lower than the EU-28 average (by 4%). Prior to 2009, when it increased significantly, it was significantly lower than the EU average. The reasons for the differences can be found mainly in the differences in the structure of energy use, where the share of liquid fuels for motor vehicle propulsion is significantly higher, and in the amount of taxation of individual energy sources.

Neutral

Emission productivity in Slovenia has improved in 2020. Compared to the EU, progress in the field of emission productivity in Slovenia is still too slow. Despite the progress made in the last two years, the link between economic development and measures to reduce GHG emissions needs to be further strengthened.

Good

The amount of landfilled biodegradable waste decreased rapidly up to 2013, after which the reduction stopped. In 2016 and 2017, as a result of upgrading the infrastructure for mechanical biological treatment of waste before disposal, the amount decreased significantly again, and in 2018‒2020 it was almost zero. In the period 2016–2020 the amount was significantly lower than the target in 2020. The main measures to achieve this reduction are separate collection of waste and mechanical biological treatment of mixed municipal waste.

Neutral

F-gas emissions from leaks from installations decreased after increasing in 2014-2016 in 2017 and 2018. Emissions increased again in 2019, but in 2020 a reduction was achieved again, bringing emissions to their lowest level in the observed period. The reduction of emissions from 2016 onwards indicates the successful implementation of measures in this area, which is reflected in the reduction of the amount of supplements for cooling systems and the change in the structure of substances in the direction of substances with lower greenhouse potential.
