The table above shows which vehicles can get a green EcoSticker or an exceptional authorization (red EcoSticker) depending on their first date of registration and their corresponding EURO norm.
Currently, only diesel Lorries and busses are concerned by the EcoSticker. Al other vehicle types are free to drive within the Danish environmental zones without EcoSticker.
Attention: Copyright of the table is owned by Green Zones GmbH.
Attention: Motorhomes with a maximal weight of 3, 5 tons or more don’t need an EcoSticker, even if they are classified as Lorries.
For cars and light utility vehicles, the order is currently not necessary and not possible.
The European Emission Standards
The European emission standards “Euro” are definitions of the European Union which determine the maximum limit of pollutant emissions from vehicles. These norms use to get stronger and stronger for new vehicles. The aim is the reduction of air pollutants in the EU.
On the left you will find the present and future European emission standards for vehicles and their first registration date.
Necessary Documentation in Order to Obtain an EcoSticker
If the vehicle has been first registered after 1st April 2008 (which means vehicles EURO 4, 5 and 6), then a simple copy of the registration’s certificate will be needed to order an EcoSticker.
If the first registration’s date is older, there must be proven by a mention of the registration’s certificate, or by any other official documentation attesting the installation, that the vehicle has been equipped with a particulate filter and fulfils then the requirements of the EURO 4 standard.
If the vehicle only fulfils the criteria of the EURO 3 standard (first registration’s date before 1st October 2006), it is still possible to get an EcoSticker if the vehicle has been equipped with a certified particulate filter, which will then fulfil the requirements of the EURO 4 standard.
