In Slovenia, the number of ISO 14001 certified companies and companies registered under the EMAS standard, as well as the number of awarded eco-label flowers, has been increasing. Slovenia ranks above the EU-27 average in the number of awarded ISO 14001 certificates and eco-label flowers. In comparison to EU, Slovenia has been less successful in the field of EMAS standards.

The area included in the implementation of agri-environmental measures expanded markedly after 1999, covering 254,772 ha (gross) in 2014. The proportion of the area with one or several agri-environmental measures (net area) to the total utilised agricultural area increased from 0.6% in 1999 to 39.2% in 2014. In 2015, agri-environmental measures started to be carried out in accordance with the new programme, on the gross area of 317,458 ha.

In High Nature Value areas, agriculture can ensure a suitable level of biodiversity by means of appropriate technological solutions. Extensive management methods facilitate conservation of the diversity of species and habitats, thus helping preserve unique landscapes with rich cultural and natural heritage. According to the estimates made in Slovenia on the basis of the CORINE data on land use and data on agricultural land use, between 60% and 80% of all utilised agricultural areas in Slovenia are located in High Nature Value farmland areas.

Good

The response of agricultural holdings to the agricultural policy and favourable market opportunities, which support the spreading of organic farming has been growing every year. The area intended for organic farming has increased in the period 1999–2020 from 2,400 ha to 52,078 ha, or from 0.5% to 10.8% of the total utilised agricultural area. The structure of agricultural land with organic farming is strongly dominated by grassland (80% in 2020), which shows that livestock farms more frequently convert to organic farming.

Slovenia has some of the greatest subterranean biodiversity in the world. The aquatic fauna, with its 200 species, is by far the richest, while the terrestrial fauna, with 150 species, is second only to the more southern areas of the Dinaric karst. Five Slovenian cave systems have been listed among the 20 richest cave systems in the world. The Postojna-Planina Cave System, with its 50 aquatic and 35 terrestrial species is by far the most abundant. The Cave Protection Act protects the subterranean environment as a whole.

Neutral

The diversity of plant species in western Slovenia (most of the Alpine region, Slovenian submediterranean region with Kras and part of Istria) with 800 or more taxa within approximately 140 km2 (basic field of four quadrants) is considerably higher than in the central and eastern parts of Slovenia.

Bad

The conservation status of species in Slovenia indicates that only 30% of species have a favorable status. Furthermore, also the trends are unfavourable. In the years 2013-2018, the proportion of species with favorable conservation status remained stable according to the previous reporting period, while the proportion of species with poor conservation status has increased. As many as one third of Europe's important bird species have a negative or uncertain short-term trend.

Bad

The favorable conservation status of habitat types in Slovenia is reached by just over a third of Europe's important habitat types.In order to achieve the objectives of the EU Biodiversity Strategy, it is necessary to follow the guidelines of the Regulation on Special Conservation Areas (Natura 2000 sites) more rigorously and to implement the Natura 2000 management program. This is especially important for areas with freshwater, wetland, wetland and grassland habitat types.

Bad

In the twelve years (2008-2020), the farmland bird index is 81.6, and the grassland bird index in the agricultural landscape is 61.7.The thirteen-year trend of farmland birds shows moderate declining, despite a slight upward trend over the last five years.

 

Neutral

Recycling of municipal waste is increasing in Slovenia. In 2012, almost 40 per cent of municipal waste was recycled. Disposal of waste has declined over the years, 42 per cent of municipal waste was landfilled in 2012. Incineration remains minimal, at slightly above one per cent.
