Bruegel Institute corrects its data: Slovenia allocates EUR 1.59 billion to green transition and digital transformation and not merely EUR 0.94 billion as initially indicated by the Bruegel Institute

Slovenia’s Recovery and Resilience Plan is future-oriented. It addresses mitigating epidemic-related impacts and supports reforms that have been long overdue in Slovenia.

Slovenia thus allocates EUR 1.050 billion for green transition and not just EUR 0.77 billion and EUR 0.54 billion for digital transformation and not merely EUR 0.17 billion as initially wrongly indicated by the Bruegel Institute on its website.

Today, the Bruegel Institute corrected the chart that illustrated wrong data and that was used as a source by certain Slovenia media. The chart using correct data can be accessed here

In addition, Slovenia allocates extensive funding to green transition and digital transformation also under the REACT-EU initiative and the MFF 2021-2027.

The EU Regulation establishing a Recovery and Resilience Facility outlines that at least 37% of each Member State plan’s allocation has to support green objectives and at least 20% digital objectives. Slovenia’s Recovery and Resilience Plan earmarks 43 for meeting green transtion and 21.46% for meeting digital transformation which is a good 6 percent more that the threshold set out by the Regulation. Slovenia falls in the EU-average in terms of green and digital shares.
