Environmental zone ZBE

Do I need stickers or registrations?

To enter the low emission zone, each vehicle concerned needs either a registration (foreigners) or a Distintivo-Ambiental (Spanish vehicles). Otherwise, a fine of 200 euros to 1800 euros must be expected.

The ZBE zones (Zona Baixes Emissions), are fixed zones that can be identified by traffic signs. They are designed to reduce air pollution in Spanish cities quickly and permanently.

A permanent ZBE zone is a zone in which permanent and fixed traffic restrictions apply, such as speed limits and other restrictions, and in which entry is regulated by a system of stickers. Furthermore, in the course of the next few years, stickers may be gradually removed from the system, so that vehicles with these stickers will no longer be able to enter the zones.

The beginning and end of the environmental zones are marked with signs. This shows a red circle as a prohibition sign with the remark Zona Baixes Emissions" (low emission zone).  In addition, there is also a reference to the Distintivo-Ambiental stickers and which entrances are allowed.


In our Green Zones App we have a detailed map of each low emission zone. So you can easily see the boundaries and avoid penalties.

Spain has a total of 7 different environmental zones. These differ in ZBE zones, ZEZ zones and ZPA zones: Barcelona, Madrid, Seville, Valladolid, Valencia.


In our Green Zones App we have gathered together all the low emission zones in Europe and presented them clearly.

Good to know...

30 km/h speed limit throughout Paris

The mayor of Paris has been declaring war on cars for some time now. The environmental zone is becoming stricter and stricter and will soon prohibit even the newest diesel vehicles from entering. In addition, more and more car-free zones are being created and the expansion of cycle paths and footpaths is taking more and more space away from vehicles. Now almost all of Paris is to become a 30 km/h zone.

Truck industry starts its own electric offensive

The major truck manufacturers have joined forces to build a comprehensive charging network for trucks in Europe. Since politicians are only making very slow progress with improving the infrastructure, they are now taking the challenge into their own hands. This is urgently needed, because soon there will be no more trucks with combustion engines in some environmental zones.

What is the Green-Zones App?

The Green-Zones App helps you to avoid huge fines and to keep track of environmental zones and driving bans. And all this without prior registration. Maybe you want to go on holiday privately, or you have a company that crosses several European countries with vans and trucks. There are many things to consider here: Where are the environmental zones? Is your vehicle affected by the rules? And do you perhaps need a sticker or registration before entering?
