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.

Neutral

In general, the levels of pesticides in groundwater are decreasing. In Slovenian lowlands (the Drava and Mura river basins), which are characterised by intensive agricultural activity, certain pesticides, phytopharmaceuticals in particular, still exceed quality standards. Individual point sources of pollution can be a result of unskilled use of plant protection products.

Bad

Greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) per unit of milk produced show a clear and favourable downward trend after 2013, but not intensive enough given the target set (<0.772 kg CO2 eq in 2020). The analysis of the trend shows that the 2020 target will be reached in 2022. Difficulties in achieving the target arise, inter alia, from the unrealised activity "Feed analysis and calculation of diets for cattle and/or small ruminants" from the original proposal of the agri-environment- climate payments measure of the 2014-2020 Rural Development Programme.

Bad

The share of renewable energy sources (RES) in the use of fuels in non-ETS industry amounted to 17.6% in 2020 and lagged 4.4 percentage points behind the annual target value. The 2020 target was thus not achieved. Compared to the previous year, the share however again increased, this time by 7.6%. The reason of the increase was a 6% increase in the use of RES, as well as a 2% decrease in the total use of fuels which was mainly caused by the measures for preventing the spread of SARS-CoV-2 virus. The largest increase in the use of RES, by 109 TJ, occurred in the wood processing industry.

Neutral

In 2020, the amount of incentives for the implementation of measures related to energy efficiency (EE) and renewable energy sources (RES) in non-ETS industry amounted to almost EUR 5.9 million, which is four times more than the previous year and by far the highest in the observed period.

Bad

In 2020, the share of renewable energy sources (RES) in the use of fuels in the tertiary sector decreased by 0.9 percentage points compared to the previous year, amounting to 56.4%, which is the lowest value in the period 2013−2020. The decrease was mainly driven by a 2% decrease in the use of RES, which was caused by a decrease in the share of RES in households; in 2020, this share decreased by 1.3 percentage points and amounted to 65%. The lag behind the annual target value was 4.6 percentage points. The 2020 target was thus not achieved.

Bad

In 2020, specific CO2 emissions in the residential sector amounted to 9.2 kg CO2 eq/m2 or 3% more than the previous year and were 0.4 percentage points below the annual target,. The 2020 target was thus not achieved. The increase was mainly due to the increase of CO2 emissions from the use of fuels in this sector by almost 4%. The increase was caused on one hand by the colder year, and on the other hand by the coronavirus pandemic and the implementation of measures for preventing the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
