The reporting score under the Core data flow of the European Environment Agency decreased for Slovenia in recent years. In 2019, we reached 90%, which is also the EEA target for the average of all countries. In the following years, we reached around 83%. In 2021, 6 EEA countries achieved 100% reporting, 9 countries achieved more than 90%. The 11 most important data flows, supporting major environmental decisions, were evaluated.

In Slovenia, the number of educational institutions participating in the Eco-Schools program is constantly growing. In the school year 2022/23, a total of 732 institutions were involved in the program, which represents nearly 38% of all schools and kindergartens in Slovenia. Through environmental projects, over 130,000 Slovenian children and students, as well as 8,500 educators and teachers, were included in the environmental education system.

Neutral

Environmental protection is important to the residents of the EU and Slovenia. The most significant environmental issues mentioned are growing amount of waste, air pollution, and climate change. A large majority of respondents agreed with statements expressing concern about various environmental problems and acknowledging their impact on their daily lives and health.

The trend of decreasing energy consumption in households between 2010 and 2022 indicates a positive attitude of the population towards efficient energy use. However, since 2017, a negative trend has been observed, particularly in households' awareness of their own energy consumption and in their consideration of more efficient use. With three-quarters of households in 2022 rating their energy consumption as medium to very high, a significant potential for reducing energy consumption in this sector is suggested.

Neutral

The declarative attitude of Slovenian households towards the environment and efficient use of energy is changing positively, the ratio between ecologically aware and non-ecologically aware is stagnating, which is evident from the environmentally oriented behaviour of households or the extent to which households actually manage energy efficiently. There is a great potential for reducing the final consumption of energy in households by developing environmentally-oriented behaviour or positive habits in the use of energy.

Bad

Among the population of Slovenia, opinions on the seriousness of the climate change issue fluctuate. However, all European Social Survey (EBS) studies on climate change, conducted since 2008, show that for at least two-thirds of the population, climate change represents a very serious problem. The proportion of households sharing this view has been slowly increasing since 2015, when it was at its lowest, and in the latest measurement, it has once again exceeded three-quarters of the respondents.

Neutral

The car remains the primary mode of transportation, regardless of the distance or purpose of the trip, while the use of public transport does not show a significant increase. The main barriers to using public transport are poor accessibility, inadequate timetables, a lack of connections, and difficult access. Time inefficiency is also a significant issue. However, there are reasons for optimism, as households are increasingly open to using public transport and car-sharing.

Neutral

The survey results show that between 2010 and 2019, the share of households considering the purchase of an electric or a hybrid passenger car statistically significantly increased. Statistical data for registered vehicles shows that, during 2014-2019, the share of new registered electric and hybrid passenger cars slightly increased. In comparison to 20 European countries Slovenia ranks in the middle.

Neutral

Large majority of registered cars still use conventional fuels (petrol and diesel). Although the total share of all alternative propulsion vehicles increased slightly from 2014 to 2019, it remains statistically insignificant.
