In 2014, the ecological footprint of Slovenia was 4.68 gha/inhabitant. For such a lifestyle 2.78 Earths are required to provide the regenerative capacity consumed by residents of Slovenia. This places Slovenia in the average of the EU countries. The carbon footprint accounts for 60% of Slovenia´s total ecological footprint and comes mainly from the residential building (36%) and personal transportation. In order to effectively reduce this share pointing towards energy efficiency, residential building is one of the key hotsports and entry points for footprint reduction.
