Social well-being in Slovenia has been improving consistently. The level of human development is high. Men and women have almost equal access to healthcare, income and education, although the distribution of social power between the sexes remains unequal.


In 2014, the ecological footprint of Slovenia was 4.68 gha/inhabitant. For such a lifestyle 2.78 Earths are required to provide the regenerative capacity consumed by residents of Slovenia. This places Slovenia in the average of the EU countries. The carbon footprint accounts for  60% of Slovenia´s total ecological footprint and comes mainly from the residential building (36%) and personal transportation. In order to effectively reduce this share pointing  towards energy efficiency, residential building is one of the key hotsports and entry points for footprint reduction.
