Abstract


As the climate change is getting more and more visible through global warming and more rapidly appearing weather anomalies. Planet resources are used more widely and rapidly due to that coming to an end. World society is concerned, how to affect global warming effect, how to find measures to preserve natural resources and promote recycling. In this global process logistics plays very important role, as it is one of the main pollution sources and resource user. Thus the rising attention to the greener solutions, doesn’t leave logistics aside. Many countries make steps to promote greener technologies and recycling in logistics field, as the logistics process cannot be stopped or make completely green, as the, necessary resource is fuel. Full stop of logistics it would lead to economics stop. Nevertheless not only technology drives logistics, also logistic processes influence heavily on ecology. If processes are not efficient, they also lead to wasting of resources. So the aim of this article is to reveal factors influencing green logistics use at the level of company from the theoretical point of view. First off all the difference between the conceptions of green logistics and logistics are presented. Secondly the use of green logistics and it’s impact to global ecology are discussed. Finally the solution of using green logistics and the factors of using it through the theoretical implications are presented.
