The Green Truck Award
The environmental ranking is carried out by the German trade magazines Trucker and Verkehrsrundschau.
How is the Green truck Award determined?
We explain what is being tested at the Green Truck and how the winner is determined.
“The environmental label Green Truck is a point of reference for fleet managers in industry, trade and logistics as well as truck drivers in terms of the purchase and use of environmentally friendly commercial vehicles.”

Sustainable for the environment
To rat the environmental performance, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are compared. The CO2 emissions are indicated as carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e). The environmental ranking also considers well-to-wheel emissions as outlined in the DIN EN 16258 regulation.
A reference vehicle is used on the 353-kilometre standardised test route to compensate for weather conditions. The transport assignment is the same for all: each vehicle is equipped with a 24-tonne heavy trailer. That is how the total weight of approximately 32 tonnes is obtained.
