A journey labelled with Good Environmental Choice has a limited climate impact, has low emissions that are harmful to health and the environment, and contributes to greater consideration for the environment and social values in the production of vehicles and their fuels. The label works to develop sustainable transport.
Can your company offer journeys with low climate impact and low emissions that are harmful to health and the environment? Then the journeys may also be able to meet the environmental requirements that Good Environmental Choice sets for passenger transport. Labelling your transport gives you support in your environmental work and can make it easier to highlight and communicate the environmental benefits you bring.

Ecolabel your personal transport
Below are the documents needed to submit the application. When putting together an application, it is easiest to read the criteria document together with the application document for the relevant mode of transport and Appendix A, for a clearer understanding of how each requirement is verified in the application process and during annual checks.
If a new licence needs to come into force from a certain date, remember to submit the application well ahead of time. The processing time for applications depends on how many modes of transport and fuels are included in the application. It is important that all the requested verifications are attached to the application, that any calculations can be followed and that the responses in the application provide the required information. The fewer supplementary documents that need to be chased, the faster the application can be processed.
