Slovenia’s references from the field of clean production mostly stem from the pharmaceutical, food processing and the automotive industry.
The pharmaceutical industry is largely defined by the two large Slovenian companies – Krka and Lek. The food processing industry has a long tradition in Slovenia, with an emphasis put on dairy products (Ljubljana Dairy, Celje Dairy, Pomurje Dairy), drinks (Union Brewery, Fructal, Radenska) and large food processing companies (Droga Kolinska, Pivka). The automotive industry includes the only Slovenian car manufacturer (Renault-owned Revoz from Novo Mesto), and a very strong array of automotive suppliers organized in the Automotive Cluster of Slovenia. These include tier-1 suppliers (Odelo, Hella Saturnus) and tier-2 suppliers (Cimos, Hidria, Kolektor, TPV, Letrika, LTH Castings, Polycom, Unior).
