The declarative attitude of Slovenian households towards the environment and efficient energy use is changing positively, while the relationship between the ecological awareness and unawareness of households remains unchanged.

Results of the REUS 2019 survey show that the car represents the main mode of transportation both in people's city of residence and outside the city. The share of surveyed households that walk or cycle in addition to driving a car and using public transport increased significantly compared to the period 2010–2017. Choice of transport does not depend on the time of year. During the summer season, the bicycle is an additional mode of transport to work for just under one-third of respondents.


Water consumption in Slovenia represents a relatively small proportion of the annual gross water outflow from the country. In 2018, the annual WEI+ index was around 3%, or, compared to the periodic average of water availability. The Long-term Annual Average Water Exploitation Index shows a slight decrease, but the trend is not statistically significant.
