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

In Slovenia, final users have at their disposal only around 73% of primary energy. In 2015 the rate reached its highest level. The efficiency of electricity and heat production is largely influenced by this share in far.

Neutral

Children in primary schools and kindergartens in the Municipality of Nova Gorica are only partially exposed to exceeded levels of road traffic noise. Measurements show that limit value for playgrounds (55 dB (A), set as a recommendation by the World Health Organization, is exceeded only at the most exceeded facade by 3 of 12 elementary schools and 5 of 16 kindergartens. As in the school year 2012/2013 1,162 students (in those 3 schools) and 439 children (in those 5 kindergartens) were exposed to some noise it would be reasonable to carry out noise measurements.

Neutral

Energy prices increased in the period 2008-2012. In the same period, the most raised the price of the natural gas industry (almost 53 %), followed by price for natural gases for households by 38%, the price of heating oil, for household electricity, the price of petrol NMB 95, diesel D2, at least has raised the price of electricity for industry, for less than 6%.

Bad

Electricity production from CHP has significantly increased in 2012, but it was nevertheless still far from the target for 2010.

Bad

The most of energy in transport is used in cars, followed by trucks, the share of which is growing very fast. Efficiency of energy use with excluded influence of transit transport is improving, but too slow.

Good

The most of energy in households is used for heating of appartments. In the period 2009-2012, efficiency of energy use increased a lot, especially on the account of increase of efficiency of energy used for heating.
