Slovenia: Climate Change is Now Number One Problem – EIB

Slovenes believe climate change is now the number one challenge facing the country, The European Investment Bank said.

Slovenia is one of only two countries in the European Union along with Denmark where climate and environmental concerns top the list of challenges respondents see for their country, EIB said in its Climate Survey.

The financial cost and implications of the green transition are likely to affect personal budgets, with lower-income households hit the hardest, the survey said.

“Faced with high inflation, most Slovenes are calling for fair policies to address the climate emergency. 68% (in line with the EU average) say the transition to a low-carbon economy can only happen if social and economic inequalities are addressed at the same time,” EIB added.
