Low Emission Zone

Do I need stickers or registrations?

No. Here you do not need to buy a sticker or apply for registration. You only have to follow the rules of entry.


Our Green-Zones App helps you to avoid penalties.

Unfortunately there are no exact street signs known. Therefore it is difficult to know when you are in the environmental zone.

Good to know...

All current driving bans and further information are available in our Green-Zones App.


Driving remains climate killer

Among the most devastating climate pests, the car takes third place. Traffic is therefore one of the main factors in climate change, and the CO2 emitted by the combustion engine must be permanently reduced.

Diesel driving bans are inexorably on the advance

Environmental zones and environmental tracks are currently hanging like a sword of Damocles over several municipalities and cities in Germany. After the displeasure about the three already installed environmental tracks is growing in Düsseldorf, last week the representatives of the cities of Bonn and Dortmund reached an out-of-court (for the time being) agreement with Deutsche Umwelthilfe in Münster, Westphalia.

France, PM2.5 and the flight ban

For 25 years now, the air quality index of the “Atmo France” institute has not changed. This index therefore does not take into account certain pollutants or PM2.5, although scientists consider the smaller particles more dangerous than its “big brother” PM10. According to the WHO, pollution due to the particles of PM2.5 should not exceed 10µ/m³ per year on average.

NO2 Atlas TU Berlin

Green-Zones participates to the citizen science project of air quality measurements “BerlinAiR – NO2-Atlas". Our team deals daily with issues related to environmental zones, air quality and traffic restrictions. For this reason, we have decided to actively support this project. The campaign was initiated by the “Environmental Chemistry and Air Pollution Control “ faculty of the Technical University of Berlin (TU Berlin).
