Introduction

Differences   which   exist   between   this   generation   and the   generation   from 1920 to 1930   year olds   from 1950 to 1960   year olds ,  is not only   better   access   to   health care   and education ,  but   also   a lot more   opportunities   for   home ownership ,  car , or  annual holidays .  In contrast   to   the previous generation,   the current generation   lives   in a united   Europe , has  full   freedom to   travel   around the world ,  above all,   the generation   currently   not   experienced   post-war period   during which   countries   in the process of   reconstruction   and   the   food   and   clothes   were   secreted   cards .  1950-1960   experienced a   generation of   Polish   life   under Communism ,  which   the body   does not   tolerate   the existence of   the individual in   society ,  have experienced   endless   queues   for   food ,  clothing   or   equipment   and household appliances .  Today's   generation of   1920-1930   year olds   do not   need   a passport   to   be able   to travel   to   25 European Union countries,   do not   need permission   to   be able to   get educated   and then   work   in   one of the   selected   EU countries .  Currently,   the generation   alive   in a much   better   conditions   than the   previous   generation .  This picture   is   typical   of most   countries around   the world ,  which   as a result   of development,   could   provide   a   much   more   current   than   the previous   generation .  The developing   world   has caused   significantly   improve   conditions   in the   areas ,  which together   make   up   the   so-called .  " good  life " [1].  However,   with the development of   the global economy   created   risks   that   may no longer be   ignored   and that their   effect   can greatly   affect the   quality of life   of future generations.   And   in   connection   with   these   threats   was   the term   " sustainable  development ", of which  current   definitions   are   presented   later in this article .

Conclusion

The concept   of sustainable development   can become   a kind of   benchmark   for  g reen   logistics ,  because   the concept   is   widely   discussed   issues   concerning   environmental protection,   social development   and   economic development.   Logistics ,  usually   occurs   only   in the   scale   of enterprises , even  in the   case of a company   with a global reach ,  logistics operations   will be conducted   solely   within   the   company   and   its effects   will adversely affect the  closest  environment of   the company .  However ,  despite the   introduction of   the concept   of sustainable   development   for   logistics operations   can contribute   to   the emergence of "g reen l ogistics ", which  not   only   will   focus   on   actions   to minimize   its   harmful   effects on the environment   but it   will   introduce   the tools and   behaviors   that contribute   to   improving   society   local community and its   rapid   economic development.   Currently,  g reen   logistics   mainly   focuses on   issues   concerning environmental protection , an introduction to  the   elements of   the concept of   sustainable   development   will allow   for   its   efficient   operation   in all   areas   listed   in the   concept of sustainable   development   and will help   popularize   the ' sustainable  logistics '  term .
