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.

Did you know?

Good

In the first decade of this century, Slovenia focused the majority of its investments in the road network, especially on the construction of the motorway. Investments in railways have been neglected and therefore, uncompetitive with the road transport. After 2011, this trend is changing, although the total volume of investments in transport infrastructure has decreased significantly since 2008. Since 2010, Slovenia has been allocating a larger share of funds to the modernization and upgrading of the railway network.

Bad

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%.

Bad

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.

Good

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.

Bad

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.

Good

In 2020 Slovenia's non-ETS greenhouse gas emissions reduced by 9,8% and were 20,7% below the 2020 target, which means the target was achieved. The large reduction in emissions in 2020 was mainly due to reduced transport activity due to the coronavirus pandemic. GHG emissions decreased in the waste, electricity and heat sector and most in the transport sector. In all other sectors, emissions recorded low growth

Despite the good results, additional measures are needed for long-term GHG emissions reduction in line with the mid- and long-term targets.
