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...

France's environmental zones are delayed

When the law on climate and its resilience ("Loi Climat et Résilience") was passed in France on 22 August 2021, many were sure that several low emission zones would be created in France this year. But with one month to go before the end of the year, there are still no low emission zones in many places. In part, there are nothing more than bureaucratic reasons for this.

The dark side of e-cars

Over the last five years, various countries in the EU have been trying to make the entire value chain of a production compatible with human rights and environmental protection. In March 2021, the European Parliament agreed to a report to require due diligence also for companies with less than 1000 employees. This is seen as an invitation to the EU Commission to draft a corresponding law.

Truckers to the office!

Not only since the pandemic have we noticed a shortage of long-distance drivers. Who is still prepared to drive goods across Europe for hours and days on end, harassed by environmental zones that many a heavy truck with the wrong sticker has to avoid. In the future, truck drivers may only need a screen and an armchair to direct the fleet.

Penance for "wild charging"

One of the biggest challenges for switching to electric cars is the inadequate charging network. Drivers still have to spend far too long looking for a free charging point. If the sales figures for electric cars increase, the problem will automatically worsen.
