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?

Good

Nutrients, especially nitrogen and phosphorus compounds, are important for the growth of algae and higher plants, but in high concentrations can cause undesirable changes in aquatic organisms and seawater quality. Long-term measurements of selected nutrients in the Slovenian sea show that their concentrations have decreased significantly. Therefore, the ecological status of the Slovenian Sea is assessed as good to very good based on nutrients in recent years.

Bad

In 2020, the share of renewable energy sources (RES) in the use of fuels in the tertiary sector decreased by 0.9 percentage points compared to the previous year, amounting to 56.4%, which is the lowest value in the period 2013−2020. The decrease was mainly driven by a 2% decrease in the use of RES, which was caused by a decrease in the share of RES in households; in 2020, this share decreased by 1.3 percentage points and amounted to 65%. The lag behind the annual target value was 4.6 percentage points. The 2020 target was thus not achieved.

Bad

In 2020, specific CO2 emissions in the residential sector amounted to 9.2 kg CO2 eq/m2 or 3% more than the previous year and were 0.4 percentage points below the annual target,. The 2020 target was thus not achieved. The increase was mainly due to the increase of CO2 emissions from the use of fuels in this sector by almost 4%. The increase was caused on one hand by the colder year, and on the other hand by the coronavirus pandemic and the implementation of measures for preventing the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Good

The cumulative final energy savings due to the implementation of energy efficiency (EE) and renewable energy source (RES) measures in the residential sector amounted to 1,750 GWh by 2020, and the cumulative CO2 emissions reduction was 273 kt. Compared to the previous year, energy savings decreased by 10% and the reduction in CO2 emissions by 6%. In 2020, the cumulative final energy savings were 25% and the cumulative CO2 emissions reduction 2% above the annual target. The 2020 targets were thus achieved.

Bad

In 2020, CO2 intensity in the commercial and institutional sector increased further compared to the previous year, to 33 t CO2/million EUR1995, and lagged 0.7 percentage points behind the annual target value. The 2020 target was thus not achieved which is due to a 3.8% reduction in value added caused by the implementation of measures for preventing the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. In comparison to 2010, the intensity was 55% lower.

Good

At the end of 2020, the total floor area of energy-renovated buildings in the public sector amounted to 1.84 million m2, which exceeds the annual target by 3%. The 2020 target was thus achieved. In 2020, 127,000 m2 of the total floor area were renovated, which is almost a third less than the previous year and also significantly less than in the period 2013−2015.
