Denmark Environmental Zones
What about environmental zones in Denmark, and in which cities do you need an environmental sticker (miljømærke)? Below it is explained in detail!
- In Denmark there are environmental zones in Aalborg, Aarhus, Copenhagen, Frederiksberg and Odense.
- For the time being, the restrictive measures only apply to vans and heavy vehicles running on diesel.
- Enter the vehicle registration number at mz.miljoezoner.dk/en/lookup/step1 to check whether registration is necessary and possible.
- The following diesel vehicles must be pre-registered at mz.miljoezoner.dk/en/create/step1 to be allowed to drive in the environmental zones:
Vans, not older than 1 January 2012, with a maximum permitted mass of not more than 3500 kg. Until July 1, 2022, vans, not older than January 1, 2007, can be registered. For more information, see miljoezoner.dk/en/vans-in-low-emission-zones-in-denmark.
- Heavy vehicles (trucks and buses), not older than 1 January 2015, with a maximum authorized mass of more than 3500 kg. A bus is considered a heavy vehicle with more than 9 seats including the driver’s seat; this also applies to large motorhomes with more than 9 seats including the driver’s seat. For more information, see miljoezoner.dk/en/lorries-and-buses-in-low-emission-zones-in-denmark.
- The registration has replaced the environmental badge (miljømærke).
Diesel vehicles older than those mentioned above are not allowed in the environmental zones. If these diesel vehicles are fitted with a particulate filter installed at a later date, they are eligible for registration.
- Diesel vehicles, older than thirty years, with a foreign registration number, are allowed and are exempt from registration.
- In July 2025, the rules for vans will be tightened.
There are plans to apply the measures to passenger cars as well.
