The eco-innovation index shows the performance of individual Member States in the various components of eco-innovation compared to the EU average, and presents their strengths and weaknesses. The overall Eco-innovation Index 2019 for Slovenia is 94, placing Slovenia on 15th rank and below the EU average. Slovenia composite index has significantly deteriorated compared to 2017, when it was at 115; placing Slovenia just behind the leading eco-innovative countries.
