The environmental badge is compulsory in Austria for trucks of category N1-N3
In 2012, different driving bans and circulation restrictions had been introduced in Austria, which have also been subject to an additional sticker requirement since 01.01.2015.
All vehicles are generally concerned, even cars. However, the environmental badge is mandatory only for trucks of categories N1, N2 and N3 when they enter one of the 6 environmental zones in Austria, and for cars registered as professional small trucks of category N1.
The environmental badge is delivered to all vehicles beginning from EURO 1 emission standard. However, entering the environmental zone is mostly allowed to vehicles responding at least to the EURO 2 standard. The main goal of this measure is to improve the air quality in a short term and to reduce the emission of particulate matter and nitrogen oxide.
The 6 environmental zones are usually not limited to one city, but cover entire regions. At the moment, the "low emission zones" affect Vienna, Upper Austria, Lower Austria, Styria, Tirol and Burgenland with an extension to the whole province or parts of the highways.
The violation of badge requirement can be charged with a penalty up to 2,200 euros.
