The reporting score under the Core data flow of the European Environment Agency decreased for Slovenia in recent years. For 2018, we achieved 86%, which is slightly below the EEA target (90% for the average of all countries). Seven EEA countries achieved a score of 100% and seven the score of more than 90% in 2018. In next years, the number of reporting flows through the EEA will increase significantly, which will also affect the change in the list of the most important data flows to be assessed.


In Slovenia, the number of educational institutions included in the Eco school program constantly grows. 722 institutions registered as an eco-school in the school year 2018/19. This present 35 % of all schools, including kindergartens in Slovenia. Thus, more than 130,000 children and 8,500 teachers were engaged in the environmental projects as part of the environmental education. Internationally, the eco-school program includes more than 50,000 institutions of which 17,000 already signed for a green flag.


Data for the period 2010-2019 show a positive trend in the estimated final energy consumption in households. The share of households that estimated their energy consumption as low or very low increased by 8 percentage points from 2010 to 2019. From 2011 to 2019, the share of households considering more efficient energy consumption also increased. The indicator also shows a significant potential for reductions in final energy consumption in households – less than three quarters of households estimated energy consumption in their home in 2019 as moderate, or high to very high.


The declarative attitude of Slovenian households towards the environment and efficient energy use is changing positively, while the relationship between the ecological awareness and unawareness of households remains unchanged. There is a considerable potential for reducing final energy consumption in households through the development of environmentally-oriented behaviour, or through positive practice in the use of energy.


In 2019, over three quarters of households surveyed in Slovenia considered climate change a very serious problem. Between 2008 and 2019, the share of these households in Slovenia decreased by 13 percentage points. There has also been a negative trend in agreeing with statements, such as "Human activity contributes most to climate change" or "Climate action must be taken immediately". According to the surveyed households, the major source of the greenhouse gases in Slovenia are industry and transport.
