Motor vehicle fine dust sticker obtained (green environmental sticker)

Service Description

Clean air plans exist for areas with poor air quality. Clean air plans contain measures to improve air quality. The establishment of environmental zones is one measure of such clean air plans. Environmental zones are intended to reduce particulate matter and nitrogen dioxide pollution.

Only vehicles bearing the appropriate sticker on their windshields are allowed to drive in designated environmental zones. This applies not only to through traffic, but also to residents in environmental zones.

If you want to drive your vehicle in such an environmental zone, you must purchase a fine dust sticker (environmental sticker).

The assignment of the pollutant groups is regulated in the Thirty-Fifth Ordinance for the Implementation of the Federal Immission Control Act.

The ordinance applies to all motor vehicles of class M (passenger cars/motor homes) and N (trucks), regardless of the type of drive (internal combustion engines - gasoline, diesel or gas - and electric drive).

Vehicles registered abroad also require the sticker to be allowed to enter low emission zones. This marking of low-emission vehicles is intended to help reduce particulate pollution, especially in cities.

The stickers in the colors red, yellow and green each correspond to a pollutant group:

  • Green sticker = pollutant group 4:
    • Motor vehicles with the lowest particulate or pollutant emissions, such as motor vehicles with the latest diesel technology and almost all motor vehicles with gasoline engines that have a regulated catalytic converter.
  • Yellow sticker = Pollutant group 3:
    • Diesel passenger cars with emission code numbers (ESN) 30, 31, 36, 37, 42, 44 to 52, 72
    • Diesel commercial vehicles with ESN 34, 44, 54, 70, 71
  • Red sticker = pollutant group 2:
    • Diesel passenger cars with emission code numbers (ESN) 25 to 29, 35, 41, 71
    • Diesel commercial vehicles with ESN 20, 21, 22, 33, 43, 53, 60, 61
  • No sticker = pollutant group 1:
    • Vehicles with a worse classification cannot be issued a sticker at all.
