On average, households expenditure by consumption purpose in Slovenia was devoted predominantly on transport, housing, food and non-alcoholic beverages, which is similar to spending in the EU. For the households in the lowest income class, housing and food  account for almost 46% of household expenditure. Energy poverty is present in approximately 7% of households, which is around 62,000 households or 102,000 inhabitants. Statistics show that households are among the largest polluters with emissions into the air (in particular with CO2, HFC, NMVOC, CO and particulate matter) and from all sector activities pay the most environmental taxes.
