The outcome of the legal dispute between the Organisation Deutsche Umwelthilfe (DUH) and several cities in NRW, which is going into the home stretch in the middle of this week, is awaited with excitement.
At the Higher Administrative Court (OVG) in Münster, conciliation talks were held yesterday between the organisation Deutsche Umwelthilfe, the state of NRW and the two cities of Wuppertal and Hagen.

Green-Zones not only wants to provide information and offer solutions with the environmental stickers or app. We want to get to the bottom of the problem. Where others only report facts, we put our heart into it!
