In 2016 and 2017, the trend of reducing specific emissions of new vehicles has stopped, and they have even increased in 2018 and 2019. Even though specific emissions of new vehicles have reduced for almost 10% in 2020, achieving the 2021 target remains on a critical path meaning that strengthening of the implementation of measures in this area is needed.  After growth in 2018 and 2019, the average emissions of all vehicles decreased slightly again in 2020, but they did not achieve the set indicative target of the OP GHG.


The share of RES in transport increased for the forth year in a row and in 2020 amounted to 10,9%. As a result, it exceeded the 2020 target under Directive 2009/28/EU by 0,9 percentage points. The average of the EU countries is also higher than the set goal by 0.2 percentage points. Sweden has by far the largest share of RES in traffic, with a 31 percent share.


After the increase in number of total passenger kilometres in public passenger transport in 2019, in 2020 the number of total passenger kilometres in PPT sharply decreased. Passenger kilometres decreased to the lowest level in the observed period in both rail transport and road public passenger transport. The main reason for such decrease in passenger kilometres is the large reduction in transport activity as a result of the measures taken during the COVID-19 epidemic.


In accordance with the set targets, it is necessary to ensure faster growth of rail freight transport in comparison to road freight transport. This was not achieved in 2020. The share of rail freight transport in total freight transport with goods loaded or unloaded in Slovenia remained under the projection value of the indicator for 2020. The number of tonne-kilometres in road transport increased by 19,2% in the period 2011−2020. In the same period, the number of tonne-kilometres achieved in rail transport increased by only 13%.
