This thesis assesses how the state of the environment in the municipality of Štore has changed since its establishment in 1995, based on the sources of pollution, the amount of emissions and their consequences in the environment. The central part of the thesis is divided into three major chapters. The first presents the geographical characteristics of the municipality, exposing the main driving forces of environmental pressures. The second chapter is devoted to the analysis of environmental trends in the municipality, and the third chapter, based on the analysis of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats to the environment, presents various municipal projects that will gradually help improve the state of the environment. The municipality of Štore lies on the eastern side of the Celje basin by the river Voglajna. The area of the municipality measures 28 km2. Approximately 4,500 inhabitants lived in it in 2021. The most polluted part of the municipality is the valley of the river Voglajna, where most of the industry, traffic and population are concentrated. The local industry remains the main source of pollution in the municipality. However, in recent years the impact of the industry has decreased due to the reduction in production and measures in favour of the environment. In the past, industrial emissions affected air, surface water and soil quality. While the emissions are still present, the condition of the first two has gradually improved, but it is not known whether the quality of the soil has also improved.
